One-planet economy: The 'Joy In Enough' Big Workshop
Sat 18 November 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 GMT
The movement is building. If you want to join us, we want to hear from you.
We are Christians seeking a new one-planet economy: one in which well-being and justice grow from within ecological limits. This is no ‘dismal science’. It is a joyful art and a sacred enterprise. We believe it is good news for all creation.
We are calling time on escalating environmental loss, inequality and debt. We are working with others across society to build a spirited movement for economic change. If you’d like to join us, come to our Big Workshop.
Together we will:
shape our advocacy to church leaders and opinion formers
design ways to engage Christians and the wider public
build alliances with other organisations working for the transition
meet others who are seeking fullness of life for people and the Earth.
The Big Workshop is for:
individuals who would like to find out more about building a movement for change to a truly sustainable economy
representatives of organisations with whom collaboration would be of mutual benefit.
