The second of four seasonal events from the Royal Society of Arts that helps people turn social change ideas into positive action. Each event is themed to a different Chinese element and this event is themed to Fire.
The event will be held outdoors in the stunning surroundings of Field725 Camping just outside Frome, with a marquee available in case of rain. There will be a talk by Sandra Norval, CEO of Bluedotaug Ltd, an innovative startup that uses immersive technology to tackle sustainability issues and helps you to see the world your way. After Sandra's talk, we will have an informal Q&A and discussion around the campfire, aiming to share inspiration and ideas that help people find the resources they need to take their own social change ideas forward.
Drinks will be provided, and you are also welcome to bring your own. Food will be available at low cost from Field725.

The speaker will be Dan Hurring, who will tell the fascinating story of setting up Field725.
Field725 believe in providing a close to nature experience that is relaxing, revitalizing and above all lots of fun. Their model is that of the traditional French campsite with activities to enjoy, space to play and offering a distinctly family-friendly experience. The campsite is spacious and set in beautiful surroundings and aims to maintain a balance between peace and a buzzing campsite life. It is the kind of place where you’re welcome to light a fire (in a fire dish); have a BBQ; play your (acoustic) guitar or whatever else takes your fancy.
The founders searched long and hard for a name that worked. All enthusiastic map lovers, they turned to scouring old maps for inspiration and discovered that in historical Ordnance Survey maps up until the Second World War, the area of Critchill Manor Estate that they are now using was designated with the rather catchy moniker of Field 725. Somehow, it stuck! And as a fine coincidence, all Ordnance Survey maps have been produced in Frome for generations.
