The Loving Earth Project, started by a few Quakers in 2019, now comprises over 400 textile panels exploring responses to climate change and environmental breakdown. People of all ages, from around the UK and beyond, responded to these questions: what is precious to us that is endangered by environmental breakdown? Is our lifestyle part of the problem, and how can we help? We are delighted to be hosting a selection of panels in the Meeting House this August. Vibrant craftivism, and an urgent message about how we can make a positive difference.
The Loving Earth Project celebrates some of the wonderful things threatened by growing environmental breakdown: people, places, creatures, and other things we love. It is helping people to engage creatively and constructively with these issues, without being overwhelmed. It’s also a way to share positive examples of change and why people have taken action for the sake of love.
