STATE COLLEGE: Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy workshop
April 1, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Join PA IPL for our 5th Interfaith Moral Climate Advocacy workshop on April 1 (no joke!), for the first time in State College, PA.
See what past participants thought.
Join us to develop clear messages to bring directly to policymakers to support ambitious, legally-binding targets for carbon dioxide and methane emissions, energy efficiency and a just transition to renewable power.
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)
- Cricket Hunter, Director of Program and Outreach, PA IPL
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 lift up the moral dimensions of this crisis and 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.
Made possible in part through a generous grant from the Patricia Kind Family Foundation.
