A paradigm shift is defined as ‘an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way.’

If covid has created this shift in thinking, what is the next step? 

How can we learn from the past few years and really make a positive difference in this changing world?

Super Humans is a panel discussion on 05 April at one of Bristol’s largest and most beautiful venues, where community gathers to look at new ideas around people-powered solutions.

‘As it becomes increasingly clear that central government has no capacity or interest in lives at a community level , especially where people are really up against it, the need for joined systems and action at this level has never been more important.

‘People do have the power.  We’ve been persuaded for generations that men in suits and elected officials will make the best decisions for us, but as the systems at the top collapse, it creates vast gaps for people power to take root and thrive.’
