What is the NJPN National Conference
It is a gathering of, usually, about 300 Christians from across the UK who all have a passion to work for social justice in the light of their faith. It takes place over the weekend of Friday 21 July to Sunday 23 July 2023 at a conference centre in Derbyshire in the village of Swanwick. The conference begins with the evening meal on the Friday at 6:30pm and finishes after lunch on the Sunday. Accommodation is all in en-suite rooms.
This year’s conference is entitled ‘ Sustainability? Survival or Shutdown‘
What is sustainability?
What needs to be considered for sustainability –
- structural injustice,
- sustainable food,
- low carbon travel,
- home energy efficiency
- What else????
Can we retain our present lifestyles in a sustainable way?
Through a combination of keynote speakers and a range of workshops these questions and more will be explored during the weekend. It is always a lively event with a good craic around the bar in the evening. Also running during the weekend will be a ‘Just Fair’ with stalls from many organisations working around sustainability and other social justice issues.
