Week One :: June 27–July 4

Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Faith to Save the Earth

Climate change is often called a scientific or political issue, but is there an imperative that comes from a position of faith? In this week, we explore what role various faith traditions play in response to the care of the earth and how those different world views might be harnessed to prioritize our global and local response.
