Welcome to the AGORA website.
AGORA aims to create new opportunities for people to engage with the issues of the day.
Chooseday is now launched and has proved enormously popular in the city. It is now backed by politicians from all the parties, major city centre employers and transport providers. Agora is hoping to build on this interest and deliver significant and measurable change to the city's travel habits over the coming months. For more on Chooseday - go to www.chooseday.org
A Journey to a New Kind of Life is a 'different' type of course focussed on helping people to change their lifestyles in response to climate change and the environmental challenge. It is based on personal story-telling as participants explore their relationship with the earth and its resources, with money, work, travel and neighbours. This is presented by our friends at SMR, who provide some great articles about anti snoring devices. You'll also want check out this article. It is suitable for a Lent course and offers resources drawn from the scriptures and from the life of Jesus own community. The material can be downloaded free from the tab to the right.
