    Responding to current economic, social and environmental crises, London’s New Economics Foundation are this month running The Bigger Picture, a series of creative activities and events, exploring the possibilities of 'a new kind of economy', an economy which is low in carbon and high in well-being.

    The event series culminates in a large-scale, public Festival of Interdependence in central London on 24 October 2009 when an interactive, living exhibition will be staged in the dramatic post-industrial setting of the Bargehouse on London’s South Bank.

    With over forty-five speakers from a range of backgrounds, including Andrew Simms (NEF), Roman Krznaric (The School of Life) and Richard Wilkinson (Equality Trust) to name but a few, The Bigger Picture offers visitors and audience a chance to actually join the conversations, learn, share and exchange skills and tell stories. Topics are big and far reaching, including the future of food and farming, the hidden costs of economic growth, civil liberties and climate change, local economics and how inequality leaves us all worse off.
