Event description
Join us for JPIT's national conference, bringing together activists and wonderers for a day of ideas, conversation and reflection.

About this Event

Our environment is in crisis, inequality is growing, and yet our economic system seems fixated on endless growth, while politics is paralysed and coarsened by division.

  • How must our political and economic assumptions change in order to meet these challenges?
  • How can we model new ways of living as individuals and as churches?
  • How does our hope in God’s future empower us to live a hopeful, abundant life on a planet with finite resources?

JPIT’s 2020 national conference Renewal and Rebellion: faith, economy and climate invites you to join with us in looking at the big challenges our world faces, rethinking economic structures and taking radical steps towards climate justice, and how we can all act to bring lasting change – in faith, for people and for planet.

Through panel discussions, workshops, poetry, art and conversation, we hope to inspire and resource people to speak, pray and act boldly for justice and peace over the next decade.

You will need to choose a workshop to take part in at the conference. Full workshop descriptions can be found here.

Keynote Speakers Include:

Ed Miliband, MP and co-host of ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ podcast

Katherine Trebek, Wellbeing Economist

Christine Allen, Director of CAFOD

Anthony Reddie, Director of Oxford Centre of Religion and Culture

Ross Greer, Green Party MSP
