How do we need to change our political and economic assumptions in order to meet these challenges? How can we can model new ways of living ourselves, and as churches? How does our hope in God’s future empower us to live a hopeful, abundant life on a finite planet?

JPIT’s 2020 national conference Renewal and Rebellion: faith, economy and climate invites you to join in looking at the big challenges we all face – rethinking economic structures and taking radical steps towards climate justice, and how we can all act – in faith, for people and for planet.

Ed Miliband, MP and co-host of ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ podcast
Katherine Trebeck, Wellbeing Economist
Christine Allen, Director of CAFOD
Anthony Reddie, Director of Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture

A welcoming and inclusive conference
We want to make this conference as welcoming and inclusive as possible. That’s why we’re taking steps to open our doors to anyone and everyone, particularly those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend.

We recognise that a number of our supporters will have a range of access needs, both visible and harder to see. We want to make this conference as accessible to you as possible, so when you buy your tickets please let us know if you have any additional access needs. These could be physical, or the need for a bit of space during the conference to help you keep calm and enjoy the day.
