Why you should come

With escalating environmental loss, inequality and debt, our current economic model is in ‘system failure’. We believe there is an alternative, and we dare to believe it can be realised.
As Christians, we are challenged from the roots of our faith to propose a new economic purpose – joy in enough for all, within Earth’s limits and in reverence for our own creaturehood. But we must start by rescuing economics from its captivity.
We look to churches to create the social space in which sustainable economies can be constructed, setting the ‘dismal science’ free to become joyful art and sacred enterprise.
Join us to:

  •  form a vision for an economy in which both people and planet will flourish
  •  help the churches rethink their own mission and advocate for the alternative
  •  stoke the debate with policies and stories which will make change happen.

This one day conference is sponsored by Green Christian, A Rocha and SPEAK.

Booking: Tickets: £18 for Green Christian members (£20 after 31 August 2015). £20 Non-members. £5 with student card.
