Climate Crisis: What’s Faith Got to Do With It?
An event for faith groups to explore the “Why?” and the “How?” of engaging in action for climate justice.
Responding to the climate crisis requires more than technical solutions. It requires changes to our inner landscapes, changes in the way we relate to one another, Earth, ourselves, and the Sacred. It calls for spiritual work as we move into bold action.
Mardi Tindal – Former Moderator of the United Church of Canada and National Mentor to “Faithful Footprints”, a program helping faith groups reduce their carbon impact – will be present to help deepen our explorations of the “why?” and the “how?” for individuals and faith groups who want to engage in climate action.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about wider movements – such as The Green New Deal, and Rights for Mother Earth – as well as local actions they can initiate such as greening faith buildings and land and water protection. Partners like the Ecology Action Centre, Faith and the Common Good, Tatamagouche Centre, and the Environment and Mining Working Group of the Atlantic Regions of the United Church of Canada, are collaborating to host this event. There will be time set aside for connecting and action planning. All are welcome!
“There’s a revolution that needs to happen and it starts from inside each one of us. We need to wake up and fall in love with Earth. Our personal and collective happiness and survival depends on it.
