Workshop Leaders include:
- Justin Wright, Mediator and Negotiation trainer, Active Neutrals
- Rob Altenburg, Director of the PennFuture Energy Center
- Dr. Richard Alley, Department of Geosciences and Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at the Pennsylvania State University (lists of his stunning science credentials don’t include that he is the winner of Penn State’s highest teaching award — though you will see right away that teaching is clearly a talent in person)

People of faith possess the moral authority to be important and credible voices, awakening awareness and responsibility for bold climate action among elected leaders and non-elected policy makers.
We seek to prepare people of faith who are willing to pro-actively initiate meetings with policymakers, electoral candidates and other religious leaders to build relationships and lift up the moral dimensions of this crisis as well as to support effective and rapid transition plans for a just, clean energy future in Pennsylvania and the nation.
SNACKS and a LIGHT LUNCH will be provided.
