Since the pandemic has started, we’ve noticed cleaner air and quieter traffic in major cities, while at the same same time, over 5 million Canadians have been receiving CERB. How can we build an economy that’s more resilient for both people and nature? And for Christians, how can the Bible inform us on ways we can contribute to a ‘greener’ economy after COVID-19?
Join the discussion to find out!
Together, we will discuss policy changes and civic actions that could change our world for the better.
This session will focus on:
- Where we are: the current economy and Christian perspectives on this.
- Where we want to go and why: Biblical perspectives and why they matter for economic renewal.
- A way forward: A Just Renewal and Green New Deal in Canada. There are actions you can take!
- How we matter: Why civic engagement and actions by Christians matter.
This is a chance to ask your questions or express some of your views, as there will be a dedicated time for discussion. Together, we will talk about policy changes and political actions that could change our world for the better.
Please invite your interested friends and family! Together, we can make a difference that could impact generations.
You’ll hear from the following facilitators:
- Nelson Lee, a climate action engineer working with industry as they transform to a low carbon sustainable and resilient mode.
- Monica Tang, an experienced Policy Analyst completing her MA in Leadership, Theology, and Society at Regent College.
- Gary Hewitt, a former UBC instructor of business, economics, and law. He is convinced that significant governmental policy changes, promoted by faithful intercessory prayer, lifestyle changes, advocacy and prophetic action are required to halt and reverse climate change.
- Samuel Chiu, the current Multicultural Program Director at A Rocha Canada. His multi-disciplinary background in environmental issues, public policy, theology and congregational ministry has equipped him to reach out to churches and Christian groups in Canada and East Asia on creation care in the last ten years.
