Fragile: Handle With Care?
August 21, 2020 1:00pm Online
Stories, reflections, poetry, prayers and songs drawn from communities grappling with fragility - in the Middle East, Africa and Central America - indicate pathways to resilience and strategies for dealing with an increasingly fragile world.
Climate change, emerging infections, and political conflict make the world feel an increasingly fragile place. Drawing on field research with communities in the Middle East, Africa and Central America we share what surveys, participatory discussions, religious reflection and poetry tell us about living and working in circumstances of fragility. Bringing the experience of these communities to life, we ask what we can take from them to develop strategies for everyday resilience and dealing with uncertainty in our own lives.Book Now
