Program

Overview

The program has been created to engage each of us in a thoughtful narrative throughout the two days on the interconnections between faith / spirituality, climate disruption, social justice, and action. The Keynotes will provide a strong basis for why we are engaging in this work, and each Speaker Group will move us forward in the narrative.  The program allows for significant interaction and dialogue.
