Faith, Science, and Climate Solutions – Southeast Speaking Tour

June 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Are religion and science in opposition when it comes to the issue of climate change? What does science have to say about both the urgency to act and the solutions that are at hand? How does our faith inform the actions that we take to care for Earth and all of its inhabitants? How can people of faith and conscience seize the moral opportunity to lead on the most important issue of our time?

Join Rev. Susan Hendershot, president of Interfaith Power & Light, and Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, as they undertake their first joint speaking tour on the intersection of faith, science, and climate solutions.

This program is part of a 5-state Southeastern tour intended to educate, inspire and mobilize climate action.

Check In, registration, and networking begin at 6:15pm.
Please register in advance to have an accurate headcount at the event!
