August 26 – Climate Disruption is a Moral Issue

Aug 26, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

A day of preparation for people of all faiths.
Learn how to speak with moral authority on the issue of climate change in PennsylvaniaJoin us to develop clear messages to bring directly to policymakers to support ambitious, legally-binding targets for carbon dioxide and methane emissions, energy efficiency and a just transition to renewable power.Workshop Leaders:

Donald Brown, Professor of Sustainability Ethics and Law, Widener University

Matthew Stepp, Director of Policy, PennFuture

Justin Wright, Mediator and Negotiation trainer, Active Neutrals

People of faith possess the moral authority to be important and credible parties to the awakening of awareness and responsibility for climate change among elected leaders and non-elected policy makers.

We seek to prepare people of faith who are willing to pro-actively initiate meetings with policy makers, electoral candidates and other religious leaders to lift up the moral dimensions of this crisis and support effective and rapid transition plans for a just clean energy future in Pennsylvania and the nation.

Sponsored by PA Interfaith Power and Light and the Eco-Justice Working Group of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
