Climate and Social Change

Climate Change and Social Change - Presentations

These four presentations on Climate Change and Social Change sketch a vision for how different efforts and roles in local and broader movements for food, climate, and social justice can fit together and the role Christian communities can play.

This presentation gives an overview of the four presentations.

1 - Rethinking the Sources, or the What - This first presentation deepens our understanding of the sources of the ecological crisis so as to broaden the avenues for change we perceive and that we can pursue.

2 - Timelines and Timescales, or the When - This presentation articulates the need to live and act with a sense of urgency and an abiding prophetic patience and courage. It outlines how our efforts can operate on multiple timelines to work for short-term mitigation and long-term system change.

3 - Roles and Relationships, or the Who - This third installment is on relationships and roles, and is focused on the dynamic work of coalition building and cultivating community.

4 - Practices, Places, and Power, or the How - This fourth presentation considers how we can bring about change through transforming our ways of life.
