Hucklow Summer School 2024 – Now Open for Applications!

Hucklow Summer School: 19th to 26th August 2024

‘Sustainable Living: Changing Our Ways and Saving Our World?’

‘The real work of planet-saving will be small, humble, and humbling, and (insofar as it involves love) pleasing and rewarding. Its jobs will be too many to count, too many to report, too many to be publicly noticed or rewarded, too small to make anyone rich or famous.’ – Wendell Berry

This year’s Hucklow Summer School will tackle one of the most pressing issues facing humankind. Through talks, engagement groups, and personal reflection, we will explore what it means to live sustainably – in the broadest sense of the word – and what might be required of us, if we are to play our part in preserving a habitable planet for future generations, and creating the better world we dream of. Along the way we will consider the significant changes that are likely to be needed – in our personal lives, our communities, our movement, and our globalised society – if we are to flourish into the future, and the place of spiritual practice and religious community in supporting us through these times of transition.

Once again it will be possible to sign up for an online-only engagement group, running for two hours daily from Tuesday-Sunday, enabling those who are unable to travel to Great Hucklow in-person to join in remotely with our core small-group activity. Our theme talks (speakers TBC) will be streamed live each morning for online participants and will be freely available to a wider audience via our YouTube channel and podcast stream later the same day. 

Further details of our engagement groups and team of facilitators can be found on the ‘Programme’ page (click here).
