Training | Resilience and Resolve: A Climate Justice Training for New York City Faith Communities
June 9 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm UTC-8
On Friday, June 9, 2023, the Center for Earth Ethics will host a one-day training at Union Theological Seminary to support faith leaders engaging with their communities in the context of the climate crisis.
Confirmed speakers on the program include Rev. Dr. Timothy Adkins-Jones, Roberto Múkaro Borrero, Dr. Christian Braneon, Amy Chester, Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Al Gore, Dr. Wendy Greenspun, Kizzy Charles-Guzmán, Dr. Ife Kilimanjaro, Rev. Gil Monrose, Rabbi Jennie Rosenn, and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis.
The training will address three key focus areas: practical action, spiritual support and ethical communication.
- Practical action sessions will focus on disaster preparedness and resilience efforts.
- Spiritual support sessions will focus on those aspects of leadership that some faith traditions categorize as “pastoral care,” with attention to the ways in which many people process this crisis through the lens of their faith traditions.
- Ethical communication sessions will engage the prophetic – or truth-telling – aspects of faith traditions, including the exploration of sacred texts and teachings, storytelling and application of moral reasoning.
The training will provide opportunities for people to share and learn about practical plans and resources, build networks of care and support, hone insights, generate ideas, and organize our communities for action.
The application period for Resilience and Resolve has closed.
