Our friends at the Edmund Rice Institute for Social Justice are hosting an exciting new social justice workshop.
Be More - “Integrating Head, Heart, Hand for Social Justice”
ERISJ One-Day Intensive
Saturday, 26 June 2010: 10.00 am - 5:00 pm at ERISJ in Fremantle, Western Australia
This Intensive assists participants to find higher purpose in life
through solidarity with, and practical action for, those who suffer
Be More challenges people to consider ‘being more’ rather than
‘having more’. Participants will conclude this interactive Intensive with an inspired, clear sense of how practically to:
• connect with the worldwide experience of humanity beyond family and friends;
• become part of the solution to global poverty and suffering;
• live a life that does justice;
• turn compassion into doing more than just donating money;
• tackle the structural nature of global poverty;
• identify and organise their own Be More activities; and
• connect with thousands of other Australians as they take up the Be More Challenge.
