Reconciling a Wounded Planet

To be held over two days on the 18th and 19th September, at Coventry Cathedral, this looks like a fantastic conference. The event actually starts on the Thursday evening with the showing of a film “Scarred lands and Wounded Lives” before the formal opening on the Friday.  Most of the first day is taken up with presentations and discussions on different themes ranging from Community Engagement to Education and Enhancing Biodiversity. In the evening there will be the first performance of a specially commission drama from Riding Lights.  The Saturday activities will give more opportunities for networking.  There are some great keynote speakers lined up including Prof Sam Berry, Dr Ruth Valerio, Bishop James Jones and many others.   Do go to the web site for more information – and to book your place – it sounds a really exciting event!  Here is the web link
