Rethinking Security

What does the word security mean to you? What do you think it means to other people in our country and elsewhere? What are the experiences, values and assumptions that underlie your first, instinctive responses? Are current approaches to security working for us in the UK and for people in other countries? If not, are there other ways of addressing the multiple security challenges that humanity is facing? What can we ourselves contribute and what are the spiritual resources that can sustain us?

This participatory workshop is designed to explore these and other fundamental questions. It will be led by Diana Francis, for Rethinking Security, an initiative that was born at Ammerdown in 2014, when a group of ‘peace professionals’ met to discuss the need for a radically different approach to human security (see www.rethinkingsecurity.org.uk): one which acknowledges the reality of human and ecological interdependence and is created by people thinking and working in solidarity with each other: a shared conversation for a common purpose.
