The foundations and future of Quaker change-making

17 November 2021 - 8 February 2022
00:00 - 00:00

This project will explore change-making and Quaker faith through a series of intergenerational conversations, and will be an opportunity for Friends to get to know Quakers of different ages living in other parts of the world.

Friends will share the resources they find in their Quaker faith for sustaining a life of social action. Over the course of these sessions, we will hear from those who’ve spent much of their lives devoted to Quaker witness and from those who are envisioning what the future of work for peace, justice, and climate action might look like. Together, let’s explore what love can do when it’s rooted in Quaker community.

Topics will include Quaker history and tradition, the role of community in resisting burnout and managing disagreement and decision making, relationships with ecumenical and interfaith groups, managing hope and despair in times of climate emergency, and planning for the future.

There will be fortnightly live sessions and you should expect to spend about 2 hours between sessions in preparation, reflecting on the materials.

This project is organised by the Young Friends Worldwide for Climate Action, Peace and Justice network, supported by FWCC. They are a group of Young Friends aged 18-35 from across the Quaker branches and from all four FWCC Sections. In 2020 they ran a 10-week series of 5 online workshops for Friends around the world concerned with climate action, peace, and justice. Visit the FWCC website (http://fwcc.world/young-friends-worldwide-for-climate-action-peace-and-justice) to find out more about their work.

Live sessions are every Fortnightly on Wednesday with the first session on 24 November at 09:00-10:30 and 20:00-21:30 (UK time) (this will be the same session run twice for those in different time zones).
