In order to spark new climate conversations, we run a wide range of public events.
Symposium: Faith For The Climate - What next after Paris? London, 21 September 2016
Global temperatures in March 2016 were the warmest on record. As climate change becomes increasingly urgent, join us in London on September 21 for an evening of positive action!
George Marshall will be speaking along with Canon Giles Goddard (Operation Noah), Rabbi Natan Levy, Maiya Rahman (Islamic Relief), Bishop Nicholas Holtam, Dr Husna Ahmad and Sir David King about working across faith on climate change, drawing on the key findings presented in our guide on Faith & Climate Change.
Conference: Resurgence, Oxford, 22-25 September 2016
The Resurgence conference will bring together 50 leading international speakers and change-makers including our very own George Marshall, Bill McKibben, Christiana Figueres, Vandana Shiva, David Puttnam, Alan Rusbridger, Caroline Lucas, Rowan Williams, Fritjof Capra, Jonathon Porritt and many others.
In his session on Friday 23 September from 11:30am to 12:30pm, George will explore how our innate cognitive biases have become mapped onto deeper political and cultural divides, generating denial and a socially constructed silence around climate change. He argues that this analysis can lead us to new insights and creative solutions – finding ways to build language and new narratives that speak to people’s core motivations and identity.
George will also be chairing the session lead by Bill McKibben and Paula Byrne on Sunday September 25th from 10 to 11am.
