Discussion and debate is at the centre of the Campfire. The world is moving at a faster pace than ever and it’s vital that we can have conversations to attempt to make sense of where we’re heading and how we can play a part and get involved..

Brian Eno delivered the first keynote speech at the inaugural Campfire Convention in the Black Mountains in Herefordshire on the morning of August 13th 2016. He asks the question "What do communities exist for?" Should we accept limitations on our personal freedoms in favour of a greater richness, power and cohesion of the whole community?

Barb Jacobson, Frances Coppola, Daz Long, Imandeep Kaur and Brian Eno discuss basic income for all - a universal weekly payment for all eligible citizens - can lead to the kind of creativity needed in the sort of world we would all like to live in.  Would we all qualify and how would we fund it? With rapid technological change and its impact on the number and quality of jobs, we need to reassess our expectations concerning work and its impact on the human spirit.
