New Loving Earth Postcards

Our friends at Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre suggested some participative elements to the Loving Earth exhibition that will be opening there on 11 August .

As well as a creative writing workshop and some sewing workshops, we have created a postcard for them to use .

Further postcards are now available on request for use in by groups and events, to help people engage with the challenges and  share what they are doing to  take action on climate change.

Loving Earth Project resource for youth and all-age groups

A new video of a version of the Loving Earth meditation and exploration process is now available on our Resources page.

The language and pace of the resource is suitable for groups of young people and all-age groups. It is divided into three short sections with pauses between for activities and discussion.

A resource suggesting different ways the video it can be used is also available on our Resources page . Devised by Quakers, it is suitable for a wide range of groups whether faith groups or not.

Please send in your textile panels

We’re delighted to have a number of exhibitions coming up over the summer and now need to plan these.  If you have completed a textile panel but not yet sent it to us, please can you do so sonner rather than later so that we can plan and prepare exhibitions. We will need panels by the end of June at latest for shows in July and August, and would like to know in advancewhich panels will be here by then.

All panels for inclusion in the COP 26 exhibition will need to be with us by September.

When your panel and text are complete please send us an email and we will let you know where to post them at that time. Thank you.

#JourneyToCOP26

Sacred People , Sacred Earth: Journey to COP 26: celebrating where we love

Celebrate a place you love , as part of a Quaker-led initiative inviting everyone to celebrate a place that is precious to them. It could be where you live now, in a distant land, a place of natural beauty, a building, or another place that is sacred to you . Life is threatened everywhere by the growing climate crisis, and radical changes are needed to avoid the worst effects.
We will help you prepare to make a textile panel expression your love for this place, and/or what you can do to help care for its future. Your panel can then be sent to join our travelling exhibition. We hope that panels celebrating beloved places all over the world will be shown in Glasgow at the time of for COP26 and will tour widely thereafter.
You can join our journey to COP26 events on 10 April or get started today using resources on our website. You might like to set aside some time on 11 March as part of the Global Day of Action when people from faith groups around the world will be taking a variety of actions for climate justice.
