Just Living: Faith and Community in an Age of Consumerism
- Course Dates: Mon 18 February, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Globalisation and consumerism affect every area of our lives.
It’s not just about shopping: these powerful forces shape our personal lives, how we relate to one another, how we view the world – and we’re having a serious impact both on the lives of the global poor, and on the health of the planet itself.
In this lecture, Dr Ruth Valerio will look at these forces and consider how we can live well in this globalised, consumerist context and what steps we can take in our own lives to be conscious consumers.
