Climate Action As Radical Love
Feb 24 @ 10:30 pm – 11:45 pm
Climate Action As Radical Love

February 24, 2019

Topic: Climate Action as Radical Love

How can confronting climate change be an act of love? The issue of climate change requires us to broaden our understandings of love so it extends beyond borders, species and generations. It requires us to find collective ways to foster radical hope. Gabrielle and Emma are organizers and co-founders of Climate Justice Edmonton, a grassroots collective organizing for social and environmental justice on Treaty 6 territory.

Speaker: Emma Jackson and/or Gabrielle Gelderman

Service Leader: Sally-Ann Mowat

Musician: Jennifer McMillan
