Handbook - Piecing Together One World - PDF 1.5MB

This handbook includes loads of advice on event organisation for seasoned local activists and fresh faces alike.  It draws upon what OWW, as an organisation, and its supporters, putting on local events, have learned together from the experience of implementing the project "Exploring Ubuntu – One World Across Faiths".  Ubuntu or active togetherness embodies the values of shared responsibility for each other.

It is intended to inspire, inform and encourage more people of diverse backgrounds to come together to explore shared values and take action locally and globally to build a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Copies of the handbook can be requested by contacting the office here

Interfaith OWW in Portsmouth:  Download the PowerPoint here - the new version for 2014 

The Portsmouth OWW group has been one of our most active and successful in holding interfaith events.  Have a look at what they have been doing in this PowerPoint - you could show it to your planning committee for inspiration!

Feel free to use it as a template for a presentation on your own OWW events. 

The new version is for use with the 2014 "Living Differently" theme. You can modify it with dates, themes and local information for your own use. If you do choose to modify sections, all we ask is for you to stay within the OWW vision and aims.

 

 

Fairtrade Foundation – Is your place of worship Fairtrade yet?

Transition Network

Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale!  A Transition Initiative (which could be a town, village, university or island etc) is a community-led response to the pressures of climate change, fossil fuel depletion and increasingly, economic contraction.  There are thousands of initiatives around the world starting their journey.
