Climate & Environmental Justice – Creation Care

Tuesdays 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Katharine Hayhoe, author of the required  text, has said, “Climate change connects to the things we all care about: the health of our families, the economic strength of our communities, and the stability of our world. Fixing it isn’t only good for the planet; it’s good for all of us…To care about climate change, you only need to be one thing, and that’s a person living on planet Earth who wants a better future.” The class will explore different faith traditions’ beliefs about creation care, the systemic problems, intersections with other issues, and what science says can be done. Required text: Katharine Hayhoe; Saving Us.
