Spirituality & the Climate Crisis

Thursday, 6 February, 2020

“Spirituality and the Climate Crisis” is our theme in honour of World Interfaith Harmony Week 2020. It will be held on Thursday 6 February, from 5 to 8 pm, at the UVic Interfaith Chapel (located at the entrance to Finnerty Gardens.) Registration required.

The climate crisis has enormous spiritual implications. Solutions will require courage, creativity, wisdom, understanding, and unity. Sierra Club Executive Director Hannah Askew will speak of what allows her to have hope. She will be accompanied by a panel of young people of diverse spiritual traditions, to discuss what teachings from those traditions the world most needs right now, in order to come together to solve this most pressing of problems. There will also be a facilitated discussion during the suppertime meal.

The event and meal are offered by the Victoria Multifaith Society and UVic Multifaith Services, in collaboration with the Community Partnership Network (ICA) and the UVic Office of Equity and Human Rights.  

Although the event is free, registration is required due to space limitations. Please register at this Eventbrite link
