“Climate Change as a Moral Issue” Events

Dr. Mishka Lysack, assistant professor at the University of Calgary and Anglican priest brought together leaders of many different faiths in an ecumenical event in Calgary. The conference in April 2010 examined the issue ‘Climate Change as a moral issue’. Four events are planned in Toronto in November 2010. An Ottawa event is planned as well.

Dr. Lysack wrote “given the severity of today's environmental issues, simply changing your personal lifestyle isn't enough. That would have been enough if we had listened to David Suzuki talk about it in the ‘80s, but our world is too far gone now. Today, we need to focus on public engagement, education and community building”
