Jonathan Bartley: Working for the peace of the city
Jonathan Bartley, current co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, gives the annual Hook Lecture talking about cities, the environment and hope for the future.
The Hook Lecture is an annual event, which aims to stimulate debate around an issue of faith in the context of the city, shaping discussion and dialogue throughout the coming year. High profile speakers launch the conversation, drawing different communities together in Leeds Minster.
In addition to his work for the Green Party, Jonathan Bartley is also the founder of Ekklesia, an independent think tank looking at the role of religion in public life and appears regularly on UK radio and television programmes.
The event is organised jointly by LCI, Leeds Minster and Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Leeds.
