On 14th March we are holding a day workshop which will be the first gathering of the new Quaker network on the Human Dimensions of Climate Change.
The programme for the day is here: HDCC Workshop Oxford
Please complete a booking form and send it to us if you wish to attend: Human Dimensions Registration March 2015
The network arose from the March 2014 Canterbury Commitment Gathering at Swanwick, where a group of Friends agreed that we want to develop a better shared understanding of the social, spiritual and psychological aspects of responding to climate change. Some of the themes that interest us include
• working with constructively with denial, blame, shame and guilt;
• embracing difference and reconciling the value systems, worldviews and priorities of different people and groups; and
• developing moral community and a collective will to change.
The workshop will include opportunities to explore these themes and to consider the development of our network. Our sessions will be grounded in Quaker worship.
Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
