A presentation and interactive discussion with three transformative thinkers and doers dedicated to healing the climate:
RABBI ARTHUR WASKOW, founder of The Shalom Center and climate activist;
DR. TODD RINGLER, a climate modeling expert working in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory; and
LYLA JUNE JOHNSTON, a descendent of Diné (Navajo) and Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) lineages, a musician, performance poet, and a fellow at the Center for Earth Ethics.
Our speakers will offer science and faith-based perspectives on the goal of 100% renewable energy, take part in a dialogue about the moral, scientific, spiritual, and political challenges of attaining that goal, and invite audience members to envision their own roles in healing the planet and our societies. All three inspiring speakers are recipients of many honors for their work.
Special performance by
Albuquerque Poet Laureate Manuel González
