Loving Earth Project is now working in partnership with Woodbrooke Quaker study centre, to take forward the Loving Earth Project among Quakers in Britain. This exciting development is part of the work Woodbrooke is undertaking over the next few years, funded by Quakers in Britain, to support Quakers in their witness to sustainability and care for the planet. Both the spiritual roots of Quaker witness and practical aspects will be addressed. A team of Woodbrooke associate tutors is being assembled to support Quaker meetings wishing to engage with the Loving Earth Project, if they need support. Further information will be available shortly.
Great to see the Loving Earth Project featured on the front of The Friend magazine this week, with some great photos. https://thefriend.org .
We hope this will inspire others to join the project, to help deepen our connections with the environmental crisis and the threat to so much that we love. Love and knowledge can empower us to take the actions needed to help mitigate the disasters that await.
We’re delighted that Loving Earth Project will be working with Woodbrooke as part of its project for Quakers in Britain on ‘Climate Crisis: spiritual nurture and learning’.
LEP and Woodbrooke will be planning a range of offerings as the year unfolds, and we hope to forge other partnerships as opportunities arise, to help us all address the climate crisis together.
This article shows how carbon emissions in many parts of the world are growing and the scale of change needed. https://www.nature.com/immersive/d41586-019-02711-4/index.html
Of course those in the wealthy West have by far the highest per capita carbon footprint, and much of that actually shows up in less-developed countries where the heavy industry is now concentrante; many of these goods (steel, cars etc) will be imported to richer countries like Britain.

Two rather different workshops have just been organised for November and January. See the events page. All welcome.
