ARC and UN ‘Faith in the Future’ Bristol 2015
Another hugely stimulating event with ARC (Alliance of Religions and Conservation) & the UN in Bristol 7th-9th September 2015.
‘Faith in the Future’ brought together 120 delegates (faith leaders from around the globe, members of the UN, the World Bank, the French & German governments, WWF & other NGO’s plus representatives from the local secondary school) to discuss the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in preparation for their launch in New York at the end of September 2015.
The 3 day event opened with a colourful procession & ceremony in the ancient Lord Mayors Chapel. Besides presentations & discussions there was a ‘play time’ & dinner at the science complex @Bristol hosted by the Mayor & a wonderful dance performance by Flamingo Chicks, a troop of mentally & physically disabled children from Bristol.
The combination of cultures & backgrounds, enthusiasm & expertise created very inspiring & challenging debate, which was a priviledge to witness.
“You were perfect to have around with your experience and calming influence, we’re so happy we found you!”
