On the Brink of Ecological Catastrophe: Between Disaster and Possibility
October 20 @ 3:00 pm EDT
Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Moore
Our world stands on the brink of ecological catastrophe. Over hundreds of years, human actions have shaped this developing disaster, made worse by global leaders’ refusals to act, which perpetuates this ecological emergency. In her talk, Rev. Dr. Moore charts a pathway to sustainability and regeneration of our planet, focusing on sacred understandings of the cosmos, the severity of the situation, and possibilities for real transformation. She seeks an answer to one foundational question: What values and corresponding actions does this situation require in order for human communities to regenerate and to protect this planet, our home?
