The role and responsibility of the media in shaping the next economy.

What role does the media play in driving forward change?

What language can be used to foster inclusive societies in a divided landscape?

What stories can be told to convey sometimes 'difficult' concepts around sustainability that don't yield short-term gains, but rather require long-term planning and investment?

Dominant stories and narrative shape our culture, and as we face an increasingly divisive and uncertain future, this panel will reflect on the role - and responsibility - of the media in shaping 'the next economy'.

This panel features Guardian Journalist Sirin Kale, Georgina Wilson-Powel, Editor of Pebble Magazine, an independent magazine focussed on sustainability and sustainable living along, award-winning content creator Ravi Amaratunga Hitchcock, Co-founder of agency Soursop and Isabel Crabtree-Condor, Knowledge Broker Narratives at Oxfam moderated by Lucy von Sturmer, founder of impact-drive thought leadership agency the Humblebrag.
