Keynote Speakers
3rd Annual Our Children, Climate, Faith Symposium


The 2015 Symposium is bringing a broad cross section of speakers and participants to learn how we can work together, while working hard on fighting climate disruption. Our keynote speakers are drawn literally from the activism in the boats (Jay O’HaraSaturday morning) and the finance industry (Shelley Alpern, Sunday morning). Robert Jensen (Sunday lunch) combines activist work at the grassroots with his academic studies and writings on the need for a revitalization of faith. Insuring that we are considering the problem holistically, Tre Cates (Saturday lunch)of the Savory Institute explores the climate problems of agriculture, offering holistic thinking to an area which remains too unstudied, while contributing greatly to the climate problem.

Come to engage, to listen, and to learn. We will also have time for inward reflection as well as celebration of our individual and shared faiths and spiritualties. And we will have fun at our Climate Cabaret on Saturday night. But most importantly come to add your voice and to be lifted by the voices of others. All are welcome.
