Interfaith Webinar (Apr 14): Facing Climate Change


Wednesday, April 14, 2021 |  4:00 - 6:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)   

Climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our time. Scientists warn that we are beginning to see irreversible damage to global climate systems. This damage is resulting in extreme weather and chaos worldwide, such as the recent blizzard and massive power outages in Texas. Our very survival and well-being depend on what we do now to change our ways and better care for the environment. How can we become healers of our planet?

This event is part of the series "Inspiring Stories for Uncertain Times" that will explore "Healing our World" from different faith perspectives. 

IslamiCity and The Guibord Center - Religion Inside Out, welcome you to a new season of storytelling and guided conversation about the real-life issues we encounter as we work to heal our world. People from various spiritual and ethical traditions will share how their beliefs inform their views and compel them to take care of the earth. You’ll have a chance to share your own thoughts in a small group. We’ll reflect on the wisdom we find in our traditions and how to apply it in our own lives.

Storytellers for this event will be:

Mona Bennani
Muslim
MS, Global Affairs, NYU

Allis Druffel
Catholic
California Interfaith Power & Light

David Partida
Aztec
Public School Arts Educator

IslamiCity is partnering with The Guibord Center, an interfaith organization dedicated to opening hearts and minds. We are bringing together people with rich spiritual backgrounds and diverse perspectives for this second season of conversations focused on the challenges connected to healing our world. We hope this virtual collaboration will serve as a model of spiritual and interreligious engagement and mutual enrichment that unites our communities in faith and hope for a better world.

After you register for this event, we will email you the exact link you can use to join us. **If you use the Zoom app on your device, you will be required to upgrade to the newest version, 5.0.
