Earth as Common Ground: The Call for a Moral Voice
Offered at two times: Please select either February 16 @ 1:00-2:00 pm - OR - 7:00-8:00 pm
The United Nations is engaging faith communities worldwide to address the climate crisis through the moral teachings of faith traditions. Join us for an “insider’s preview” of their newest initiative and explore how our local faith communities can become part of the global action.
Presenter, Sr. Cj Willie, Ph.D., is program director at EarthConnection and Co-Chair of Faith Communities Go Green. Previously, she served at the United Nations (UN), where she worked extensively in the areas of environmental sustainability, poverty eradication, and interfaith initiatives.
As a result of her outstanding work, she was invited to evaluate the UN’s pilot online Faith for Earth initiative, which will debut this year. We are honored to have Sr. Willie share a preview of that initiative’s approach to its three main objectives:
1) to inspire and empower faith organizations and their leaders to advocate for protecting the environment
2) to green faith-based organizations’ investments and assets to support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and
3) to provide them with knowledge and networks to enable their leaders to effectively communicate with decision-makers and the public.
Faith Communities Go Green is proud to offer this opportunity with Sr. Willie. Discover how your faith tradition can be a part of this important global challenge to care for creation.
