Next: 7pm on Zoom: Paying the price for what I believe in - Sue Hampton, Author, Educator and Climate Activist
Quaker Sue Hampton had a rewarding and successful career as a visiting author to schools – running writing workshops and helping young people engage with literature.
After being arrested on climate demonstrations, Sue got a criminal record and is now barred from talking to children in schools. Ironically, Sue had been praised by her clients who appreciated her ethos; "Sue’s message was all about being brave enough to be yourself even when that means being completely different to others," commented one school librarian.
Sue will share her experiences in a 20 minute recorded video interview with Lou Solas Haven from the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action at Queen's University Belfast. After the screening, she is happy to answer questions in person about her decision to stand by her beliefs, and how she lives now.
Making Values Visible is our free monthly online discussion group tackling ethical questions and stresses in the workplace and wider economy with an emphasis on supporting the individual to speak their mind when they know what is right.
It is held on the third Wednesday of the month and hosted by the Communications Working Group.
The session lasts one hour and features a recorded video, presentation or live presentation of a theme around ethics and values in business.
Participants can take part in discussions and other guided exercises.
