CONVERSATION WELCOME - Exploring the future of the UK after the EU Referendum
The Referendum result has left some mourning the loss of an important identity while others are delighted by the opportunities that lie ahead.  Many are uncertain about what the future holds.  Our new resource is designed to encourage conversation exploring the important underlying questions:
- What kind of society do we want for future generations?
- How should we treat others?
- How should we use resources?
- How should we make decisions? 

A note has been added to the webpage on the Conversation Welcome resource in the light of the general election.
