Keeping the Kindness: How do we Nurture Community Spirit?

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at 6 – 8:30 PM UTC

At this event, we will be focussing in on this outpouring of other-regarding action and asking how we ensure that we don’t lose it as the pandemic wears on and various factors threaten to divide us. Moreover, it’s one thing to be good in a crisis, but how can we foster kindness in our ‘ordinary’ lives, once the pandemic is behind us? Join us to hear speakers reflect on these questions from a variety of different faith perspectives and to discuss your own ideas with people from different backgrounds in small ‘break-out rooms’, so that together we can try and keep the kindness!

Hope for the Future

Hosted by Interfaith Scotland and Interfaith Glasgow.

The final event in a 3-part interactive online series organised by the Interfaith Liaison Committee to the UNFCCC,
“Faiths Unite: Visions for Transformative Climate Action.” As we reach the time of what should have been the COP26 in Glasgow, this session will offer a space for dialogue on faith-based
climate action. We will share and reflect on stories of hope in action from faith communities confronting the climate crisis around the world. The session will offer interactive opportunities for participants, facilitating connections and raising motivation for the year ahead.
