Mikkel Juel Iversen runs Under One Sky, an organisation which raises awareness of what life on the streets is really like and supports the homeless with life support packages and simple offers of help which may enable them to leave the streets and live independently.
Mikkel will facilitate an interactive discussion which will expand our understanding of what it means to be homeless in our wealthy and materialistic society and we will have the opportunity to explore this most basic of human needs and emotions for ourselves.
After the discussion we will go to a nearby cafe and continue talking and networking over a drink or snack (everyone pays for themselves).
Danish-born London based Mikkel Juel Iversen has one foot in social consciousness and change and one foot in the film world. In 2012 he set up the collective Under One Sky to support the homeless and bring attention to the issue of homelessness. The ethos of Under One Sky is to offer genuine personal connection with those living on the streets. Since its inception Under One Sky has supported 2,500 homeless people and the collective has grown to 400 volunteers.
