Week One :: June 27–July 4

Climate Change: Prioritizing Our Global and Local Response

How we talk about climate change is rapidly shifting. But amid the ongoing political debates, how are we — and should we be — responding?

  • What does prioritizing a response to climate change mean, and how do we collectively determine the overall benefits and costs of such investments?
  • How do we balance proactive work aimed at reversing climate change with strategies for adapting to the realities of its worst effects?
  • We examine case studies of solutions being sought at a global and local scale, from the work of small U.S. towns to foreign countries, and from corporate investments to military strategies. 

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.
