Event Details

International conflict, and the resulting death and suffering, raise concerns for people in Oldham. But what can we do that will make a difference?   

The conference will discuss practical and peaceful ways in which  Oldham residents can contribute to: ending violence, offering humanitarian assistance, encouraging just and lasting peace settlements, and avoiding damage to community relations in Britain.

What’s going on? 

 

  • Keynote speaker - Colin Parry, co-founder of Foundation for Peace. Colin's 12 year old son Tim, and three year old Johnathan Ball, were killed in the Irish Republican Army bombing of Warrington in 1993;
  • Workshops on how to influence policymakers from Oldham's three Members of Parliament - Debbie Abrahams, MP Oldham East & Saddleworth; David Heyes MP Ashton-under-Lyne; and Michael Meacher, MP Oldham West & Royton;
  • Other workshops including:  Challenging injustice; Safe and effective use of social media; Practicalities of providing humanitarian aid; Muslim-Jewish Dialogue; the Refugee experience. All workshops will allow plenty of time for questions and discussion. 

 

  • Marketplace with organisations involved in aid and campaigning.

 

The conference is free, and open to people aged 16 years and over who live or work in Oldham.
