From the organizer:
We invite you to attend this extraordinary daylong intensive plunging deep into the facts, faith, and politics around our climate catastrophe and the effects of climate change and the pandemic on our shared future. We will examine the similarities between what climate change and Covid19 expose etc.
The presenters are women of action, who are renowned leaders in their respective fields, all of whom have deep regard for the ways in which world view, values, science, and contemplative practice play an essential role in how we shape a future that is just, sane, and compassionate. The program includes key presentations and talks from climate scientists, perspectives from long-term contemplatives and environmentalists, and insights from social historians. There will be presentations, meditation, Q and A from participants, panel discussions, plus a reader and reading list. In addition, registered participants have access to the program once it’s completed. Join us now for this free, online (donation only) program on June 21. Information about how to access and all materials are forthcoming.
