The 2014 Ecumenical World Development Conference

“GOOD WORK” – EWDC 2014
What is good work? How do we understand it theologically and recognise it in practice? What role can it play in helping to create more just societies and a fairer world? And how can we work with others here and elsewhere to enable more people to have access to it?

The 2014 Ecumenical World Development Conference will bring together leading theologians, policy experts, representatives of business and government, campaigners, and members of a broad range of churches to explore vital questions about work, identity and society.

Organised by a coalition of Christian development agencies, campaigning organisations and denominations, EWDC is a unique opportunity for Christians with an interest in global poverty and justice issues to meet, share and learn. Participants will leave informed, stimulated and equipped to play their part in tackling one of the key issues of our time.

The 2014 Ecumenical World Development Conference will be held at the High Leigh Conference Centre in Hoddesdon, Herts. It is a full board residential conference. Registration is from 2:00pm on Friday 7 February, and it ends after lunch on Sunday, 9 February.

Residential places cost from £140 per person for the full period. Day delegate rates are also available.
