In the last 12 months we’ve seen the ratification of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, Scotland meet it’s green-house gases reduction targets and Holyrood debate an ambitious new climate change strategy.
But looking ahead we face the environmental, political, and economic uncertainty of a post-Brexit Union, an aggressively pro-fossil-fuel administration in The White House, and a nation in which 1 in 10 Scottish species is at risk of extinction.
So how do we continue Caring for Creation in Times of Change? What does that mean?
Author and keynote speaker, Alistair MacIntosh, will be speaking on themes from his latest book, Poacher’s Pilgrimage: An Island Journey.
The day will offer a chance to network with other Eco-congregations and attend workshops from Christian Aid, Tearfund, Meet-Your-MSP Project, RSPB*, and the Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum
At this year’s event, we hope the day of talks, workshops and networking will equip and inspire you to go forward with practical inspiration, encouragement, and hope.
