Each start time will have 45 minutes of videos with 5 speakers. The speakers will come from each of the four FWCC sections and represent diversity of Quaker traditions, ages, and gender in order to represent the fullness of who we are across the world. After we hear from the speakers, there will be two hours for worship sharing.

The purpose of the worship sharing will be to listen to how we are responding to God’s call to care for creation.  How are we co-creators with God and each other? Volunteers will gather what they believe is the sense of the meeting which will be shared as a statement the following week. This will help guide us as we move toward the World Plenary Meeting in 2023 in Southern Africa Yearly Meeting.

Aim of the online conference

  • To galvanise and gather the Quaker voice on sustainability.
  • Share progress, ideas and learnings since Pisac minute in 2016. Where are Quakers now?
  • Explore how God calls us to this – we are stronger when we are together.
