“Activating Hope as the Earth Heats Up”

Description:
“Activating Hope as the Earth Heats Up”
6:30-8:30 pm Wednesday, September 26
Brighton Memorial Library, 2300 Elmwood Ave, Rochester, NY 14618

Devastating fires, floods and hurricanes in the past year have reminded us that we ignore climate change at our peril. Yet the scope of the problem can leave us feeling powerless and in despair over the fate of our precious planet and the generations who will follow. Using words, images, music, humor, and interaction, Pachamama Alliance facilitator David Inglis will help participants discern the underlying cultural values that created this crisis, present an evolutionary perspective on our climate predicament, and show us how we can shift from being powerless bystanders or lonely stalwarts to active collective agents of a grounded hope that doesn’t wilt in the face of the daily news. He will also introduce us to Project Drawdown, a new comprehensive plan coordinated by Paul Hawken to reverse global warming. This event is sponsored by Color Brighton Green

Since 2017 retirement as Sr. Pastor of Henrietta United Church of Christ, David Inglis has devoted his time to speaking and creating events with Pachamama Alliance, whose vision is to create a human presence on this planet that is environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling.
