Event Details

As the United Nations gears up for its COP 26 climate summit in
Glasgow, the leaders of the world face an unenviable task. What
hope is there for the future of the world? What might be the part
not just of leaders, but of each of us? Is it enough for to be about
the conventional agendas of science and technology, of economics
and the politics? Is it all about the outer life of humankind? Or must
we dig deeper, and dig from where we stand? Does the vision for
the future also call upon our inner lives, both individually and
collectively? Is climate change a spiritual imperative, “a basic call to
consciousness” as the Iroquois Confederacy called it, to deepen our
humanity?
