The South Belfast Eco-Quaker Group is organising and hosting a series of civic conversations related to the challenges of the ecological and climatic emergencies. As well as enabling a process of learning together and from a diversity of perspectives, initiatives and stories, the ‘Eco-Quaker Conversations’ are intended to help us look for ways to enact constructive responses for the common good. Several of the conversational gatherings scheduled for the coming months have a particular focus and involve invited contributors whose role will be to inform us and provoke our thinking together. From time to time, the intention is to pause for reflection.
