Human Dimensions of Climate Change

Do join us for our Summer Solstice retreat on the Human Dimensions of Climate Change, at the Quaker Community, Bamford from 18th to 22nd June.

The retreat will be centred in worship and we'll explore some of the juciest, most interesting, most challenging aspects of engaging with climate change as Quakers.

In particular:

Being patterns and examples, open to transformation. What inspires, motivates us and sustains us on the path through darkness to new life?
Answering that of God in the other. How do we engage positively with people whose values, priorities and ways of working seem different from our own?
Finding unity. Have we found ways of empowering people to make a difference together?

We start with supper on Thursday 18th and finish with lunch on Monday 22nd June. The Quaker Community is half a mile from Bamford rail station, with trains from Sheffield and Manchester. The cost is £150-240 depending on what you feel you can afford. Comfortable accommodation and vegan or vegetarian food are included.
