Security matters to all of us. We all have a stake in the task of building a more secure society, both within the UK and in the wider world. Escalating violence and insecurity suggest that current approaches are not working. Part of the reason for this is that they do not adequately reflect the needs, concerns and hopes of a broad range of people.
On Sunday 22 April, 3FF will be hosting an event in partnership with Rethinking Security (RS): an organisation which promotes conversations about security in different communities.
We invite you to join with others for a conversation about security: what it means to people of different faiths and beliefs and how it can be improved, both here in the UK and globally.
Questions we will explore:
Participating in this conversation will give you the opportunity to:
Who is it for?
How do I get a place?
