Organised jointly by two groups: Church & Peace and the Fellowship of Reconciliation.
The main speaker is Maria Biedrawa, a member of FoR France and a peace Deacon. She travels extensively and will be sharing stories from the Central African Republic and South Sudan that highlight what armed conflict really means for people and what unarmed non-violent civilians can do to face it.
Three workshops will happen twice
a) A chance for further conversation with Maria
b) Asylum Seekers and the Militarisation of Borders – Bridgit Walker from the Quaker Asylum and Refugee Network will lead
c) The Carbon Footprint of the Military – Stuart Parkinson from Scientists for Global Responsibility will lead.
