About the event

Booking is essential. Please use the 'Register here' button. We will send you a zoom link on the day.

You will need to join on a laptop – it won’t work on a phone or tablet.

The Assembly will decide on a rural issue, whether to approve a planning application to build a wind farm in wild hills. All the participants take on a role. Some are indeed ‘More Than Human’: they might be the wind itself, a soaring eagle or a bat. Others may be a future human from Greenland; a multinational – EDF; a past human, such as the assassinated activist Ken Saro-Wiwa; or a current human: a poet and a Welsh farmer. 

Together, they negotiate an agreed decision on EDF’s application to build a wind farm in the wild hills of Garn Fach. Unlike, say,  the COP climate negotiations, More Than Humans are part of the negotiations, on an equal footing with humans. As an Assembly participant noted "In real world negotiations, More Than Humans don’t have voices at all, so it totally warps the outcome."

The involvement of More Than Humans means that the Assembly comes up with policies that are more radical and more ambitious than politicians ever come up with.
