Event description
#LeaveNoOneBehind - Global Aware Bristol 2020

About this Event

To Leave No One Behind requires a proactive stance of solidarity with the most marginalised and poorest communities, locally and globally.

As we commit to a fairer society for all, the Global Aware Conference 2020 #LeaveNoOneBehind brings together faith and community groups to learn, act, pray and reflect upon what it means to be agents of transformation and unity.

Martin Luther King Jr. said that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”

that’s why at this years #LeaveNoOneBehind conference we will join together with leaders, theologians, policy makers and activists from across Bristol and the country to explore how we can break down barriers, foster integrated, healthy and diverse communities; and ensure that we all journey into a future of flourishing together.

This day aims to inspire and encourage action for a sustainable and hopeful world, to overcome the common narrative of division and fear.

There is a need for fundamental changes to the way societies and lifestyles are shaped if we are to provide for a just and sustainable future. Inspired by God's Kingdom values and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the focus of this day will be on positive empowerment to bring change with many practical opportunities for what we can do together.

Themes for workshops and presentations will include:

  • Responding to climate change
  • Tackling homelessness
  • Building inclusive communities
  • ending modern slavery
  • SDGs - God's Global Goals?
  • Political action locally and nationally
  • Inspiring stories of transformation from around the world

Key issues will be explored through a series of TED-style talks and films, as well as workshops and stalls. Confirmed speakers are The Rt Revd Vivienne Faull, Bishop of Bristol; Hannah Malcom, award winning theologian and climate activist; Pastor Pete, Founding Director of Green Pastures; Sam Rush, Disaster relief consultant, modern slavery activist and TEDx Bristol 2019 speaker.

All are welcome. Ticket price includes morning refreshments.
