Can humanity create a legacy that resonates through the ages? Well, every oak tree began as an acorn. And every fire began as a spark. In line with Campfire's ethos, the Athens beacon is curating the Renaissance of Humanity speaker's tent at the Little Chill festival, where we hope to inspire ideas, synergies, and cooperation towards reimagining how society operates. Join us for an inspirational line up of speakers and do, as Lao Tzu said, 'the great things while they are small'.
