SATYAGRAHA: an Interfaith Reflection on Nonviolence - XR Faith Bridge with guest Alastair McIntosh at COP 26
Nonviolence is a key ideal in several world faiths. It has also been part of the ethic of action and activism on climate change. What are the uses and abuses of this approach? How can we deepen our understanding in a world that is struggling to recognise, let alone, respond to climate change? This talk and discussion will explore these questions, drawing especially from Hindu-Buddhist, Christian and Taoist insights and practice.

Alastair McIntosh is the author of Riders on the Storm: the Climate Crisis and the Survival of Being. A member of Glasgow Quaker Meeting, for the past quarter century he has lectured on nonviolence at military staff colleges in the UK and wider Europe, and is an honorary professor at the University of Glasgow.

​Extinction Rebellion's Faith Bridge is a do-it-together all-faiths collaboration & different practice traditions, whose lives are dedicated to service & love and compassion for all Life. This event will be Zoom shared from the Glasgow Quaker meeting house, one mile away from where COP 26 will be taking place. As in-person capacity there is very limited under Covid regulations, most people will probably join by Zoom.

(Alastair and his wife Vérène Nicolas are also running Meetings for Clearness training workshops from the Glasgow Quaker meeting house during COP 26, the bookings landing page for which is: - case sensitive.)
