The Synergy Project
Friday, 11th of May 2007
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1London UK
The dynamic collective of the Synergy community gathers one last time before a long summer break!
Synergy is a magical indoor festival, combining musicians, DJs, VJs, performers, and artists from all corners of creativity, joined by various proactive NGOs and charities.
Synergy strives to create an optimistic approach in raising awareness on the many crucial issues affecting our world today. The events gather some of the UK’s leading creative multimedia organizations alongside international NGOs such as Oxfam, Survival, Speak, WWF, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, and Campaign Against Climate Change, to provide just the right mix of open hearted enjoyment and meaningful reflection for a new direction.
PLEASE NOTE: We have a Peaceful Smoking Inititative.
This will be the last event until October so we have prepared something extra special for you!
Liquid Records and Friends make another move into the capital, bringing their audio delight and ground breaking sounds to the main stage of Synergy, enriched by the beauty of the UK’s leading video installation and production crews Pixel Addicts and Inside-Us-All.
Also back from afar we welcome the return of the Fluffy Mafia with their awesome suspended decor and canopies. The music program for the evening will feature some of the most diverse sounds ever to greet the Synergy audience. Beginning with Ambient, through to Psychedelic Break-Beats from the UK’s leading underground labels and organisations, and into the best of the Now in Global Psychedelic Trance, seamlessly stitched together in the logic of connectiveness.

A series of presentations hosted by Jeff (‘GoodJeff’) Laster will be held on the night:
HOT AIR? THE GREAT SYNERGY GLOBAL WARMING DEBATE
A panel of climate change experts will debate whether it is human-created carbon emissions which are responsible for current global warming, or sunspots and other ‘natural’ phenomena, or a mixture of both explanations.
Should we be concentrating on reducing carbon emissions, or are we wasting our time, energy and money? Current governmental actions in response to global warming will be looked at from various angles, as will individual strategies. Are we acting too slowly or too hysterically?
The future of the planet’s climate will then be explored by our panel.
The Synergy audience will have ample opportunity to present their own views and questions to the panel will be welcome.
Featuring on the panel will be:
Polly Devlin, popular writer and broadcaster on environmental
issues from the Ecologist magazine.
Mike Buick, respected climate change expert and analyst from Climate Care, Oxford,
Daniel Spencer from SYNERGY, longtime climate change activist.
Piers Corbyn, the acclaimed astrophysicist and meteorologist from Weather Action.
Richard D. North the well known writer (former Times environmental columnist), broadcaster and commentator from Living Issues.
BE THE CHANGE
“We Must Be the Change We Wish to See in the World”. So said Mahatma Gandhi. The BE THE CHANGE’ movement took those words to heart and created a framework and facility to help people make that truth take reality in their own lives.
On May 11, in conjunction with the Synergy Project Global Warming debate, members of BE THE CHANGE will be showing us what exactly BE THE CHANGE is about and how it can assist you in becoming a vessel for realising the change you wish for.
In the Red Room…
