This international conference, organised by ministers of the United Reformed Church (URC), will explore how communities of faith can and should be responding to the increasing threat of global warming. It will include politicians, activists, theologians, academics and Church leaders from the Pacific countries of Kiribati and Tuvalu – two nations under direct threat from the disastrous consequences of climate change.
Keynote speakers include Prof. Michael Northcott, professor of Ethics at Edinburgh University; Alasdair Roxburgh, Christian Aid’s churches campaigns manager; Mark McAllister, chair of an oil spill prevention, response and advisory group; Rosalind Selby, principal of Northern College; Maina Talia, secretary of the Tuvalu climate action network and Maleta Rumaroti from the Kiribati Protestant Church.
The conference takes places on Saturday 26 September 2015 at St John’s Church, Waterloo, London.
