Salt Exeter Network, the Christian Aid Business Network presents ‘Business and Creation.
Should we worry about changes to the climate? Are these simply welcome signs that Jesus will return soon? Or do the ‘signs’ of climate change point to a very different truth. There are more and more calls to reshape our understanding of creation and our place within it and to be more faithful to a scriptural vision of a humanity ‘in communion’ with creation, not dominating or exploiting it. We need to understand what is happening and to find the meaning in it. And we need to find sources of hope, so that we might be inspired to take action. Taking inspiration from Christian Aid’s report ‘Song of the prophets: a global theology of climate change’ we will explore how we can develop businesses ‘in communion’ with creation and the practical actions we can all take to be change-makers in our businesses
Attendees will be inspired and supported to think about how they can put values to work by leading change in their own business, provoking a community of change across faith and business networks and resourcing change by supporting entrepreneurs in the global south.
Workshops are free to attend but attendees are encouraged to make a donation towards Christian Aid’s work.
Christian Aid is working to eradicate poverty across the world, and is coming up with some innovative ways to do just that. We are inviting business leaders to work with us, and with each other, to tackle global poverty. The new Salt Business Network is open to anyone who owns a business, or is in a senior management position within a commercial organisation. It is for leaders who want to join a movement of like-minded people, who will learn about putting in place more responsible business practices, and about sustainable development, through the lens of faith.
