Tuesday, Dec 8 – Ecology and Spirituality – A Conversation
7 – 8:30 pm

How does ecological awareness inform our spirituality? How can spiritual practices help ground us as we engage in environmental work? How do these intersections inform how we live, work, study and organize – and can these differ based on our personal faith – or unfaith? The panel of student leaders and campus organizers includes: Fatima Mohammed, ecology and spirituality intern with the Multi-Faith Centre; Esther Townshend, coordinator of the Student Christian Movement in the GTA; and Tristan Laing, Director of Education and Community with Regenesis, an environmental organization.
