Passionate about sustainable living, international development, technology and social enterprise - the “Small is” Festival, occurring 31st August to 1st September, might be worth a look.Small is Festival

Set six miles from Rugby in Warwickshire, the “Small is” Festival, is a small annual festival to celebrate the ideas of the distinguished philosopher E. F. Schumacher. Mostly famous for his 1973 book ‘Small is Beautiful’, he believed in putting people’s real needs at the heart of development, and this philosophy is key to “Small is” organisers Practical Action, Energy Without Borders and the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Festival itself. The Festival will include hands-on workshops, inspiral talks and lectures, games, food and music, with a focus on exploring some of the most challenging questions facing society today...

If nothing else, if you are a self starter, with an innovative idea to a social issue, or see yourself as a social entrepreneur, this Festival might be key to helping you chat with the right people and learn a little along the way.

Close to Startacus’ heart, this year’s theme is ‘Power to the People’, and we look forward to hearing more about this Festival and its success over the forthcoming weeks. You can find out more about the “Small Is” Festival via their website and we wish the Small is organisers all the best with this years event.
