My Documentary

Think Act Change

In 2020 as the pandemic set in, we hosted a series of silo busting events on sustainability. Hosts David Labi and Jo Sullivan gathered friends from California and Chile, Paris and Berlin, Stockholm, London and Brussels, some truly inspiring movement founders, business leaders and decision making officials.

We discussed how to burst bubbles and build bridges in society, together with an audience of 1000+. Watch this space for more radical collaboration workshops to THINK ACT CHANGE. See you there !
