You can see a full list on What's On here.
A LIVEABLE EARTH: CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE FAITH COMMUNITY examines:
How does the way we live our lives affect the world we are living in?
How much do we care and what role do faith communities play as bystanders or agents of change?
Can we continue to consume the way we do and still leave a liveable Earth for future generations?
Fazlun Khalid, founder of the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences and author of Signs on the Earth: Islam, Modernity and the Climate Crisis, will share his thoughts on the consequences of our lifestyles and how we can leave a liveable Earth for future generations.
