This is the third discussion meeting that is part of RIFF's preparation to support a Rugby schools event that Coventry and Warwickshire SACRE , in conjunction with RIFF, is planning. The schools event will explore the role of religion and world views in addressing climate change and care for the environment and will take place in June.
During these three RIFF discussion meetings we are exploring how our individual faiths help to motivate us to protect the environment and address climate change.
Please come along and share your insights on this truly existential topic. Each session will be led by one of the RIFF Steering Committee using the short briefing documents that have been prepared to support the schools participating in the schools event.
RIFF will be hosting further discussion meetings in September through to November (there will no meetings in August or December).
Topics under consideration are:
- Discussion around Immigration, Refugees and Asylum seekers. We are hoping to arrange for local Immigrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers both recent and earlier arrivals to the UK, to tell us their stories.
- Presentation and discussion of Secularist and Humanist perspectives on spirituality.
If there other topics your would like to be discussed by RIFF please contact the RIFF Secretary.
