This Symposium takes a fresh look at what need to be our biggest concerns - environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfilment - and explores and exposes what connects them. A unique workshop experience, it offers insight into the nature of our world, with leading-edge information, dynamic group interaction and inspiring video clips from some of the world's most respected thinkers and doers, including Paul Hawken, Desmond Tutu, Julia Butterfly Hill, Brian Swimme and Thomas Berry.

The aim of the Symposium is to explore how, by pulling together on an unprecedented scale, we can move in a new direction, towards an era of interconnected action and collective wellbeing. If you are ready to be disturbed, inspired and moved to action - if you are ready to be introduced to a thriving community of like-hearted, deeply committed people - we invite you to come to this Symposium.

What makes this Symposium different ?

Most of us know quite a bit about environmental and social justice issues – we all have our own ‘line’ or lack of it on spiritual things – what this Symposium does is pull it all together – one set of issues requiring one set of diverse, but linked responses.  Single issue campaigns can only take us so far, this is the time for pulling it all together.  This symposium offers one mechanism for helping us do this.

The Symposium was created in the United States by The Pachamama Alliance and has been promoted in the UK by ‘Be the Change’.  45 facilitators have already been trained to present the Symposium in Ireland under the banner of Aisling Na Cruinne.
