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.

What role can faith communities play in creating a sustainable economy? At the Big Workshop we’ll be exploring that question, and working together to build a faith-led movement for a new economy.

Come to Our Big Workshop. Together we will:

  • Explore a Christian vision for human flourishing within natural limits.

  • Test-drive the new learning guide for church groups that we are developing.

  • Build alliances with other organisations.

  • Meet like-minded people working for a fair and sustainable future.



The Big Workshop is for:

  • Individuals with an interest in a fair and sustainable economy, and those ready to help build a movement for change.

  • Representatives of organisations that would like to collaborate.
