Event description

Description

The movement is building. If you want to join us, we want to hear from you.

It’s time to create an economy which is good news for the Earth and all its people. The Big Workshop will be a day building a faith-led movement for a truly sustainable economy. Let’s do it together.

Come to Our Big Workshop. Together we will:

  • Share and discuss our Joy in Enough Declaration setting out God’s vision for our world in which all might live together in happiness and fulfilment without endangering the future of our common home.

  • Try out one of the modules in a learning guide we are preparing for church groups to explore the possibilities of an economy which is just, equal and environmentally sustainable. In our Joy in Enough programme we are drawing on the treasures of our Christian faith to build a new economy where there is enough for everyone without transgressing or exceeding our earth’s limits.

  • Build alliances with other organisations working for the transition to new economy

  • Meet others who are seeking fullness of life for people and the Earth



The Big Workshop is for:

  • individuals who would like to develop their ideas further in this area, and to help build a movement for change to a truly sustainable economy

  • representatives of organisations with whom collaboration would be of mutual benefit
