As climate change becomes more pronounced, communities around the world will have to become more self-sufficient and sustainable. Faith communities have a unique opportunity to guide others by providing space, pastoral care, education and leadership.
MTSO, the Center for Earth Ethics, the Climate Reality Project and the Initiative for Food and AgriCultural Transformation at Ohio State University will host a conference for faith leaders, "On Food and Faith: Ministry in the Time of Climate Change," May 30 through June 1 on the MTSO campus, 3081 Columbus Pike in Delaware.
Conference leaders include former Vice President Al Gore, founder and chairman of The Climate Reality Project, who will deliver a climate and agriculture presentation. Faith leaders who wish to be considered for participation may learn more and apply at www.mtso.edu/foodandfaith.
The application deadline is April 15.
Application decisions will be communicated in April and May.
The Center for Earth Ethics will collect a $35 registration fee from accepted applicants.
