A climate scientist, an investment fund manager and a student of environmental studies: what do they share in common? Our speakers
A climate scientist, an investment fund manager and a student of environmental studies: what do they share in common?
Our speakers in September come with stories, experiences and aspirations in their faith journey as they make sense of the Christian narrative in the work that they do, particularly in relation to climate change, the environment and its socio-economic implications. When we understand that each of us has a stake in the world we live in, caring for it becomes not just the job of the environmentalist, but for all who tread on this earth that God has so marvellously and beautifully created.
Join us next month and our 3 practitioners of mission who believe that the Church can participate in the restorative and healing mission of God through the stewardship of His creation. Through their work, they will share some practical ways we can help to practise, equip, and mobilise the new generation of missions practitioners in creation care.
