Our thinkshop from the second Campfire Convention explored new approaches to education. In many ways, education is at an all-time low and in need of a complete shake up. There is no more time to tinker around the edges. We need an innovative rethink and a new imagining about how learning in the 21st Century can engage our children, young people and indeed our educators.

Sally Hughes delivered a poignant keynote 'There Are No Gods' at our first London event, "The story we need to start learning how to tell in order to, as George says ‘infect the minds of people’ is that of how we really do begin to start living more sustainably on the Earth, and not just fussing around the edges like we are now."

A new way to do politics starts with the self and the idea that by helping each other we also help ourselves. No longer is the primary objective ‘what can I get from this?’. A move from ‘extrinsic’ values – those based around fame, power, wealth and competition, is being superseded by a realisation that ‘intrinsic’ values - universal rights and equality, the natural world and independent thinking – are more important in many ways.

For me, the story we need to start learning how to tell in order to, as George says ‘infect the minds of people’ is that of how we really do begin to start living more sustainably on the Earth, and not just fussing around the edges like we are now. How can we, as individuals within communities have new social imaginings, how can we create new narratives for our time? We have to change how we think about ourselves and our world, can we do this through the stories we tell?
