The Loving Earth project aims to help a wide range of people to engage with the challenges of living more sustainably, motivated by love.
The project is suitable for craft groups, faith groups, or other community groups to get involved with, as well as individuals. It can be a good way to engage in dialogue and learning about the environment, as well as fun. Young and old, environmental experts and novices can share ideas, skills, questions and hopes. And we have lots of resources to help under lockdown as well as when we’re able to meet up in person.
Started by a few Quakers in 2019, the project is generating interest from a wide range of people. The Quaker Arts Network is now working in partnership with Woodbrooke and others. The Quaker Arts Network is responsible for the exhibiting side of the project and for working with non-Quaker community groups and individuals, while Woodbrooke is working with Quakers as part of their work on sustainability for Britain Yearly Meeting. Some of our workshops and courses are on our news and events pages.
The project’s development is under the strategic oversight of a Steering Group. People can participate from anywhere in the world and are welcome to organise their own events and displays, though we hope that many of these will come together at for key displays, for example at the time of the COP 26 talks in Glasgow, UK, in November 2021. This will enable us to share what we love around the world and inspire us to act for love’s sake.
To find our more information about the Steering Group members and responsibilities of the various involved organisations, please email us.
The project is largely run on a voluntary basis. Please get in touch if you’d like to help and tell us what you might offer.
