The week of the 19 – 26 October is One World Week and this years theme is “Living Differently – Breaking Chains – Making Change” and is inspired by Nelson Mandela’s words
“… to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others”.
This year’s One World Week is encouraging us to organise or support activities and events in local communities that promote and involve active citizenship through:
- Sourcing food differently
- Reducing wastefulness
- Using money differently
These simple steps can help us to break the chains of the global food supply systems and consumer habits that damage the environment and communities worldwide and challenge the current money markets by using money positively to make the changes that can build a fairer and more sustainable world.
