Many of us feel overwhelmed or even helpless when it comes to climate crisis. We are often left feeling frozen and wondering, What Can I Do?
This series is your chance to get unstuck!
Ground yourself in your spiritual practice as we explore the thoughts of prominent religious leaders on climate change, focusing specifically on Laudato Si (2015) by Pope Francis during the Season of Creation.
Inform yourself with cutting edge research and ideas about how to address climate change as we explore together How To Avoid a Climate Disaster (2021) by Bill Gates.
Discuss, explore and commit to special areas of focus for change in your life for the planet!
