- Social Transformations: discussions on the future of fashion and sustainable cities
- How-To Workshops, including: climate justice in arts programming, ethical fundraising and producing sustainable events

Regardless of if you are a newcomer to addressing climate change in your work, or have been operating in this field for some time, Season for Ex-Change is a place and time for collective listening, learning and action.
All events will be captioned and/or BSL interpreted.
Season for Ex-Change events to watch out for that feature Julie’s Bicycle team members.
