The Great Invitation

November 3, 2014


We all love to receive an invitation, and Tearfund have a ‘great invitation‘ for you to consider responding to!

Tearfund have a vision of a just and sustainable world where people and communities flourish, within the planet’s boundaries. It’s a bold vision that means reducing poverty and looking after the planet can work hand in hand – in an economy that serves all people. They are set to launch a major new initiative on this theme in 2015. And as a forerunner to this they want to hear from you and resource your ideas through the great invitation project.

In the past year Tearfund’s Advocacy team have supported initiatives like Hope for the Future and Pray and fast for the climate . Now they want to throw the net wider.

Are you a budding social entrepreneur, communicator or mobiliser with a great idea to connect and inspire people to play a part in helping to create a more just and sustainable world? Are you an artist/performer and need some support to enable your creative work to find a new or wider audience?

Tearfund are not looking to be overly prescriptive but do want your idea to fit with the vision, to be sustainable, to be innovative, to inspire and mobilise others and to play a part in the movement in seeking a more just and sustainable world.

Key Info and Dates

Applications for the great invitation will close at 5pm on Friday 5 December.

Shortlisted applicants will hear back from Tearfund by Wednesday 17 December

Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to attend Tearfund’s Office for an event on Saturday 17 January to pitch their idea to a panel who will decide which ideas we will get behind and give our support to.
