JustShare is a coalition of churches and charities committed to promoting a just share of the world’s resources for all.
We do this through free public debates, seminars, lectures and other events aiming to engage specifically with the City of London on issues of global development and justice, and to encourage positive action in response. Learn more here.
Women as Agents of Change
4th October 2016
St James's Church, Piccadilly
Our speakers included Christina Rees, Katie Allen and Anneke van Woudenberg. Chaired by the Rev Lucy Winkett.
Cathedrals and churches on four continents have come together to raise awareness and activism about water by launching the JustWater website (justwater2017.org). This website is part of a new project focussed on celebrating, protecting and ensuring equal access to the gift of water for all, with an international programme organised by St George’s Cathedral (Cape Town); St Paul’s Cathedral (London); St Paul’s Cathedral (Melbourne); and Trinity Church Wall Street (New York).
JustShare is very proud to be one of the local partners in making JustWater 2017 a success, so keep an eye out on our website for more details coming soon. In the meantime, take a look at www.justwater2017.org and tweet your thoughts with #JustWater2017
Is it safe to drink the water? Healthy humans and water justice
6:05pm, Wednesday 15th March, at Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside
Water is an essential element of life, something we all need to grow and thrive. We must establish healthy relationships between our own bodies and the water we need, and also look to areas around the world where access to clean drinking water and sanitation can be an everyday struggle.
Join us as we gather a panel of water health experts to discuss what a healthy relationship with water looks like across the planet and focus on the importance of water justice in an unjust world.
Our speakers are:
Dr Lee Hooper, Reader & Senior Lecturer in Research Synthesis & Nutrition, Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia
Professor Hugh Montgomery, Professor of Intensive Care Medicine and Director of the UCL Institute for Human Health and Performance
The panel will be chaired by Christine Hancock, Founder and Director of C3 Collaborating for Health
This event is part of JustWater2017, a programme of churches and cathedrals around the world working together to raise awareness and activism about water.
