Building on the success of our sell-out conference last year,

Green Christian is organising a day with two world-class speakers

to take further our ground-breaking Joy in Enough initiative.

Put the date in your diary now!

The economics of hope

Saturday 7 November 2015

Bristol

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.

The economics of hope takes place from 11am to 5pm on 7 November at St Michael’s Centre, Stoke Gifford, Bristol BS34 8PD, adjacent to Bristol Parkway station.

Working groups

Five Working Groups (WGs) are discussing the different requirements for the transition to an economy that promotes well-being sustainably.  More information on the five  themes can be found on the Working Groups page. These groups will continue to grow and flourish feeding on issues developed and raised through our recent Conference 29 March 2014.
