Place: Manor Park Grove, Northfield, Birmingham B315ER

The Millennium Development Goals were agreed by the United Nations in 2000 and were due to run for fifteen years. In many areas we have seen real progress in that time. For one goal, however, that most concerned with environment, things have got a lot worse. In September 2015 the United Nations agreed new Sustainable Development Goals which focus more on environmental concerns.

This conference, organised by the John Ray Initiative, will look at where we stand now on environmental sustainability, and what an appropriate Christian response should be. We will then have a range of seminars covering topics including food, energy, fisheries and cities.
The day will be of interest to all Christians who are concerned about environmental issues and sustainable development. Places will be limited and the day is likely to be popular so book early to ensure your place.
