Beyond Despair and Denial: Facing Climate Change with Moral Urgency and Hope

  • Cathedral of St. Philip 2744 Peachtree Road Northwest Atlanta, GA, 30305 (map)

Yale Divinity School and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies present a panel discussion on the intersection of climate change and our faith, Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in Child Hall at the Cathedral of St. Philip. A reception will precede the event at 6 p.m. in the Atrium.

Amid dire news of climate change, the question only intensifies: What do we do now? As we sort through the accumulating data and endless politics, a vital element gets lost — the moral dimension of the environmental crisis, and its especially punishing toll on poor communities. The time is now for a galvanizing religious and spiritual witness. Join us for a public conversation focused on ethical solutions and practical strategies for building a movement that meets the climate crisis.
