April 9 conference: taking action on climate change

Notice of the following event was forwarded by YEEC member Dorothy Healy:

Exploring Faith & Sustainability in an Age of Climate Change

For people of faith who care about protecting life on the planet

        • Explore the growing ethical challenges posed by climate change & how we respond
        • Learn how faith traditions act to inform and inspire environmental stewardship
    • Mobilize people of faith to chart a course to local and global sustainability

Maine Interfaith Power and Light and Maine Audubon invite clergy, lay people, community leaders, and others to gather for a day to draw inspiration from the natural surroundings of Hallowell’s Maple Hill Farm and plan what lies next for Maine’s faith communities and others in promoting environmental stewardship and responding to climate change.

Following a special interfaith ceremony and a keynote address by Malcolm Burson, Climate Adaptation Program Manager of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, participants will engage in a dynamic group facilitated process to identify the issues most important to them and encourage a closer examination of these topics to form a consensus around next steps. Amy Scott of Good Group Decisions will guide us through the day’s activities. Please see agenda below.
