The Anatomy of Modern Wars

29 Mar 2015, 11am

Conway Hall Ethical Society presents

Anatomy of Modern Wars

A panel of three will discuss the problems of contemporary war. The discussion will kick off with Derek Gregory’s view of the origin of warfare in human society. This will be followed by an examination of the break-up of Yugoslavia and the subsequent wars there by Vlaho Kojakovic. Then John Edwards will analyse the Russia-Ukraine conflict. After some general discussion amongst the panel, the audience will be invited to contribute their views on this vexed subject.

Derek Gregory has worked at the National Institute for Medical Research for nearly 30 years after having served in the Medical Services in the Royal Air Force. His interest is in 'reality' and all that is associated with it, which is why he attends Conway Hall Ethical Society Sunday lectures. To ‘balance things up’ he also attends his local Church-of-England on occasions to hear the other side of ‘life’. 

Vlaho Kojakovic is a Senior Banker at European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). He is responsible for the development and implementation of a sustainable development strategy within the property and tourism sector at EBRD. He is also a Board Member of the General Tourism Council of Croatia and Ukraine and an Investment Committee Member of the Global Property Fund.  

John Edwards has been a member of Conway Hall Ethical Society since 2005. His background is in industry and applied science. His first contacts with the Russian language and people were in the late 60’s but first visited Russia in 2009, and has maintained a close interest in the country ever since.

If you would like to comment on this event please visit our Ethical Record section.

Doors 10.30. Entry £3, £2 concs./free to Ethical Society members.

Tea, coffee & biscuits will be available.

The People’s Panel

Mon 30 Mar 2015, 19:00

The Young Foundation presents

The People’s Panel

Join us for the culmination of The People's Accelerator: The People's Panel.

An evening hosted by The Young Foundation, Conway Hall Ethical Society, People's Republic and Sunday Assembly's Sanderson Jones. General Secretary of the Cooperative Party, Karin Christiansen, will introduce the pitches by talking about the opportunities that alternative finance models present for social initiatives.

The event is the first of its kind - a live crowdfunding festival supporting six social justice organisations to raise the support they need to grow.

Each one has been taking part in The People's Accelerator at The Young Foundation for the past four months. The organisations are:

The Reasons Why Foundation
Mumspace
CitySafe
STEAM University
InSync Music
Connect Justice

The aim of The People’s Panel is to put the growth of important social projects in the hands of the society itself. Each organisation will present their work. They will be working to convince you, the audience, to add your support to their cause – through giving time, money or simply loud cheers of encouragement.

You can view all their crowdfunding pages here.

What is The People's Accelerator?

The People’s Accelerator supports campaigners from across the UK to build structured, high-impact and financially robust civil movements which can grow to tackle the root causes of inequality. Alongside Citizens UK and The Centre for Justice Innovation, we recruited six projects with the momentum and commitment to make this happen.

From November 2014 - March 2015 we have supported these groups to develop their ideas, build the capacity of their teams, refine their visions and accelerate their growth through targeted funding and support.

Now it's your turn to help them grow.

Join us from 7 - 9pm to see what our civil movements have started and to join in their journey.

Entry: Free.

Ethical Yoga – Introductory Course

Tue 31 Mar 2015, 6.15pm

Conway Hall Ethical Society & YogaPod London presents

Ethical Yoga - Introductory Course *SOLD OUT*

We hear a lot these days, that “yoga” is good for us. But why is that and what it is good for? Can yoga be for anyone? Does it need to be ‘spiritual’ to be of benefit? 

Over the four-week course, you will be introduced to fundamentals of the yoga “asana”, how to align the body, counter hyper-mobility, improve posture, core strength and safety techniques to ensure your own practice is muscle and not joint based.

Nicole Frances-Galtié became a qualified yoga teacher in 2006, after completing the Yoga Alliance 200 RYT training at OmStation3 in West London. Her own practice and teaching style is focused on the physiological building blocks of a good practice. Alignment is key and understanding how each individual body responds to yoga training is of paramount importance, you’ll never be made to conform to a perfect pose, but you will learn to build a pose from the ground up, so that it’s aligned, supported, safe and beneficial. 

Introductory Course Topics 

31 Mar - What’s “Core” Strength? 

7 Apr - Structuring of the Asana 

14 Apr - What makes a “dynamic” practice? 

Each session lasts 75 minutes.

Tickets £5 per session
