HOPE FOR THE EARTH -
Nov 5th - 7th
Friday 5th – Sunday 7th November
Patrick Woodhouse, Jonathan Hewitt and the Minsteracres team
The world’s leaders gather in Glasgow from 1 – 12 November for the UN conference on Climate Change (COP26). It is no exaggeration to say that the future of an inhabitable earth hangs on their meeting. This retreat will explore the Climate Crisis and the Ecological Crisis asking how we may all be involved in a different way of living for the future of the planet. In particular we shall reflect on:
- The extent of the world-wide crisis and global initiatives of hope,
- The loss of biodiversity in the natural world in the North-East region particularly,
- The plans of the Minsteracres Trustees for the Retreat Centre in the face of the crisis
- The Vision of the Minsteracres garden Eco-community for a different way of living
- And how each of us can offer our own contribution in creating hope for the earth.
