Festival of Transformation
Saturday, February 9 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
This day aims to inspire and encourage action for a sustainable and hopeful world, to overcome the common narrative of division and fear.
There is a need for fundamental changes to the way societies and lifestyles are shaped if we are to provide for a just and sustainable future. Inspired by God’s Kingom values and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the focus will be on positive empowerment to bring change, practical opportunities and what we can do together, rather than allowing the enormity of the issues to generate paralysis.
Themes for workshops and presentations will include:
Responding to climate change
Plastics and waste
SDGs – God’s Global Goals?
Political response to the SDGs, locally and nationally
Inspiring stiories of transformation from around the world
Feeding Bristol, feeding the world
Key issues will be explored through a series of TED-style talks and films, as well as workshops and stalls. Confirmed speakers are Ruth Valerio and Chris Wright.
All are welcome. Ticket price includes morning refreshments.
