PYM Committee on Friends Education and Friends Council on Education co-host a “Triad Gathering” of Clerks of Meetings, Heads of Friends schools, and Clerks of school committees.
In a day-long program focused on “greening” we’ll explore:
- What possibilities exist for Quaker Meetings and Friends schools to work together on sustainability measures and eco-justice goals? How do we help each other walk the walk AND talk the talk?
- What is eco-justice and what is its role in our Meeting / school communities?
- How does eco-justice connect with spiritual nurturing in our schools and Meetings?
Exploring the witness of ECO-JUSTICE in meeting and school communities
Bring people from Friends schools & Quaker meetings together because of our shared missions
Share strategies – What can Friends schools and Quaker meetings learn from each other?
