Around Australia and around the world, communities are coming together to work for a socially and environmentally just future, free from the ravages of climate change. The speakers at this seminar are all Christians who are active on climate change in their faith communities and beyond. Their approaches are varied, and include church-based practical projects, education and awareness raising, lobbying, and direct action. Come along and learn about climate change, why it is of concern for Christians, and what you can do about it.
