Salisbury Conversations: What is a good life?

Book this event

Join us for a series of conversations addressing the big issues of today with high profile panellists from journalism, public life and think tanks. The panellists are not the celebrities of politics or government but rather commentators and social and political observers – individuals on the “inside”, who influence our news, views and understanding of the world around us. The purpose is to encourage us all to think about our future and how we can shape it at a time when society is fragmented.

Are you concerned about how global warming might affect your children’s future? Are you more worried about the effect social media has on emotional intelligence? How do we define a ‘good’ life and what legacy do we want to leave for our children and our children’s children?

This discussion is facilitated by Canon Dr James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College. The panellists include The Bishop of Salisbury, The Right Reverend Nicholas Holtam, Church of England lead in the House of Lords on the Environment, Natalie Haynes, comedian, classicist and author of The Ancient Guide to Modern Life and Harun Kahn, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain and Leo Johnson, who heads up PwC's Disruption practice and co-presents the Radio 4 series “Happiness Hacking” – and is Boris Johnson’s brother.

The Salisbury Conversations 2019 : Crossing Divides will each be recorded in front of an audience and broadcast the following evening on BBC Wiltshire and BBC Sounds at 19:00.
