We have all seen in the news the United States recent decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement. But do we understand what that means or why we should care?
Jer Swigart will be leading a conversation with Richard Lindroth and Jason Fileta on how our faith must compel us to not only steward our environment well, but also to move us into action within our systems to ensure that our planet and all those who inhabit it flourish.
Richard Lindroth, Ph.D. is an ecologist and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison whose expertise is in the ecological effects of climate change. He fuses science with his faith in Jesus and will help unpack where our world is at in climate change.
Jason Fileta is the Executive Director of Micah Challenge, is an advocate for climate justice and movement leader who is committed to ending extreme poverty. He is a faith leader and activist whose advocacy for justice is the central expression of his faith in Jesus.
