ActivateLDN is a fresh initiative run by a collective of Catalyst alumni. Young people are facing a future of divisive political and social changes both nationally and globally. In a time of division and disagreement, the importance of building bridges, connecting across divides and meeting challenges in creative, practical and inspired ways is more pronounced than ever.


ActivateLDN is a day-long event consisting of workshops and skills sessions in order to learn the tools and develop the skills we need to address these divisions. It is an opportunity to connect with others who are driven by a desire to create a more beautiful world. You can expect opportunities to challenge yourself, hear, experience and explore different perspectives, and learn tools for addressing the challenges facing us individually and collectively.

We want to reflect, collaborate and act, in order to take courageous action towards a more harmonious world.

A brilliant line up of workshops will be held throughout the day on:
