From the Margins to the Heart of our Public Witness – Faiths for Climate Action

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past decade, faith community engagement on climate and environmental issues has gone from a marginal concern to an emergent top‐tier priority, with more and more faith groups investing energy and resources in this area. Religious‐environmentalism is now poised to evolve to a new level of reach and impact, with local faith communities coming together to join the new "glocal" (global‐local) climate and environmental movement. This session will trace key factors in the development of the religious‐environmental movement, analyze the current context, and offer a vision for the movement's future that creates opportunities for holistic eco‐discipleship that will represent a foundation for church development in the anthropocene era.
