Webinar | What role can Anglican institutions play in saving the planet?

Tuesday, November 30 at 11:00 pm to Wednesday, December 1 at 12:30 am

Leaders of 200 countries are meeting in Glasgow in early November in a last-minute effort to reverse what is clearly a degree of climate change that threatens life on this planet. Reducing carbon emissions is a vital first step – one that will meet well-financed opposition – but what is really required is a radical re-thinking of how we as humans treat our air, our seas, our soil, our fellow creatures.
What role can Anglican institutions – notably our global network of colleges and universities – play in this literally life-saving endeavor? What immediate threats do our institutions face?
Is academic research and teaching enough? Or is this a crisis so fraught with the possibility of an uninhabitable planet that new kinds of Christian activism are required?
