Welcome to a talk on active hope within the concept of ”Church and Chill” at Teleborgskyrkan, where I will present the book Active Hope – How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy, written by Joanna Macy (environmental activist) and Chris Johnstone (medical doctor).

We will talk about three different ”stories” about our world – three stories that we’re all living in at the same time which makes it complicated for us. We will talk about how we can find courage, creativity and compassion to meet challenges such as climate change. We will also talk about what makes active hope different from ordinary hope and hopefulness.

I translated the book into Swedish last year so I can also talk about this in Swedish, should there be participants who have problems understanding English.

You can read about the book here (Swedish) and here (English).
