Next up at NetSquared Adelaide: Development in Good Faith?
If you missed out this month's Digital Strategy event with Erica Nistico, it was well attended and I've put together a blog post featuring tweets and resources that were shared.
In July we're taking a sidestep from the usual digital events and joining in, once again, with One Just World. Last year's event was packed and we've been fortunate to have a very limited number of prime seats reserved just for us.
What: One Just World: Development in Good Faith?
When: Thursday, July 25, 2013 6:00 PM
Where: Pacific Cultures Gallery, South Australian Museum
Here's a look at what the event's about - looks like it could get a little controversial!
Generally speaking, at the core of faith are the pillars of an honourable life; behaviour, values and morals that are imparted from birth and reinforced daily. It also offers a sense of security and hope to those who may have suffered injustice, deprivation or war.
Yet history is also riddled with examples of where the complexity of the relationship between people, their faith and the faith of others has resulted in prolonged periods of instability and violence. Fierce and lengthy battles have been fought to maintain, regain and expand territory in the name of religion.
So how does this apply in the context of delivering aid and international development?
Hope to see you there, check it out!
