Better Together: 2017 partners

We’re pleased to announce the organisations we’ll be working together with this year for Greenbelt 2017 : The Common Good.

Main partners:

Christian Aid
We’re excited to be working with our main partners on a joint campaign for Greenbelt this year. We’re just putting the finishing touches to our joint planning and we’ll announce more about it in February. Watch this space.

Church Times
Our Christian media partners will be back, hosting our onsite bookshop, G-Books and collaborating with us on some literature programming in our Leaves venue.

Associate partners:

New …

Citizens UK
Helping us think about – and workshopping with us on – community organising and how to make a practical difference to the injustices in the communities where we live.

Returning …

Supporting our thinking and action around accessibility and inclusion.

Helping us reimagine what post-colonial global mission might look like, redeeming the old idea of commonwealth for the 21 century, re-casting it in the light of The Common Good.

Winchester University
Working with their undergrads to improve the quality of the conversation at Greenbelt – better listening, better understanding, better collaboration and cooperation. Debate for the Common Good.

URC (The United Reformed Church)
Following on from their brave question to us last year – Scrap the Church? – the URC will be thinking though what radical inclusion needs to look like in the church as part of their feasts and festivals focus in 2017.

Embrace the Middle East
Partnering with us on our engagement with and advocacy around justice in Israel-Palestine in this critical year of anniversaries – 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, the 70th anniversary of the UN Partition Plan for Palestine, and the 30th anniversary of the launching of the First Intifada.

Student Christian Movement 
Working with us on engaging young adults and older teens around living faithfully and generously in the major transition stage of their life.

Supporting us again in hosting our youth programming at the festival and providing fun and games – and welfare support – for all young people at Greenbelt 

We’ll also be collaborating more informally with:

St Martin in the Fields
On Sacred Music and Art.

Anthony Collins Solicitors
On enterprise for the Common Good.

Together for the Common Good
A movement bringing the principle of the Common Good alive and drawing people together across their differences.

Amos Trust
Encouraging Greenbelters to book into Amos Trust’s trips to Israel-Palestine – to see the Land once called Holy for themselves and to meet the Living Stones.

We’ll be updating the partner section of our website over the coming weeks and you can keep up with all this by signing up to our e-news Dispatches (just enter your email address into the Newsletter signup box at the foot of this page). We’re pleased to be able to collaborate and cooperate like this. It’s for The Common Good. We really are better together.
