A full-day virtual gathering to advance For the Love of Creation’s action on climate justice.

The 2021 Fall Symposium will mark a key moment in the For the Love of Creation journey, in Canada’s climate plan, and in global climate action as we engage with COP 26 (November 2021). It is intended to bring together people to learn more about climate change and climate change advocacy from a faith perspective. We will hear from the collective reflection and writing process called the Letter of the Faithful that engages in a process of theological reflection and discussion around climate change, learn more about our climate advocacy goals and how they have evolved, and network with others in our regions around local climate action.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Councilor Christine Boyle, OneCity Vancouver
  • Sister Eva Solomon, csj
  • Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat, biblical scholar and permaculture practitioner
  • David Goodin, ecotheologian
  • Mueni Mutinda, Canadian Foodgrains Bank
  • Jennifer Preston, Canadian Friends Service Committee (Quakers)
