Afri Féile Bríde 2017 – Solas Bhride Centre, Kildare Town, 4 February 2017

 

Afri’s vision is of a more just, peaceful, equal and sustainable world. Afri seeks to inform debate and influence policy and practice in Ireland and internationally on human rights, peace, global justice, and sustainability issues. Afri particularly responds to injustice caused by militarisation, and by environmental destruction and resource depletion. They do this through analysis, education and action in solidarity with marginalised people in the ‘Global South’ and also in Ireland and elsewhere in the so-called ‘developed world’.

Feile Bride happens annually in Kildare around the start of spring in February. It is a time for celebration and reflection in the spirit of Brigid’s message of justice, peace and hope which is as relevant as ever today. Among the issues to be explored at this year’s Afri Féile Bríde 2017 conference will be forced migration – the inevitable consequence of war and climate change. A great opportunity to hear Scottish Quaker Alastair McIntosh talk about forced migration, climate change and peace. Book and learn more here.
