This event is presented by Brahma Kumaris in collaboration with Faith for the Climate, as a contribution to Green Faith’s Living the Change project.
When it comes to such a crucial issue as climate change, we may sometimes doubt whether our individual choices can make any kind of meaningful impact on a situation of such magnitude and complexity. Yet the kind of change needed today will not happen just through hope or wishful thinking. It may only be when each one of us takes personal responsibility to make changes in our own lives that we will see the kind of quantum shift needed in the world to bring about transformational change. To explore the importance of our choices today, we join three speakers in conversation who are all leaders in their field, three people whose lives have for many years reflected their value and caring for the Earth.
Canon Giles Goddard Chairperson of the Faith for the Climate network and is Vicar of St John’s Church, Waterloo, London.
Sister Jayanti Director of Brahma Kumaris Europe and Middle East. Main Representative to the Unated Nations (UN) in Geneva.
Prof. Dr. Mark Lawrence Scientific director at the IASS in Potsdam and integrative scientist who addresses key challenges of the Anthropocene.
Philippa Blackham Former Staff Reporter and Presenter for BBC Radio 4, (including 7 years as one of the voices of ‘Woman’s Hour’ an award winning radio documentary maker).
