Sustainability in Crisis

A three day event to discuss routes to a sustainable future and the contribution religious groups can make

Individuals, businesses, governments, community leaders and others all face challenges in transitioning to a more sustainable existence and motivating others to make the major changes required. The Sustainability in Crisis conference will host representatives from all of these sectors with the aim of discovering how we can work together to achieve a greener future.

The role of religion will be one of the cornerstones of the debate, which attempt to answer questions surrounding the nature of fulfilling human lives and societies. For many, these questions can be answered only with reference to religious belief. Religion at its best can inspire, educate and mobilise people and communities into transformative action. How can it be helped to do so in the sustainability debate? Speakers will include Satish Kumar, Bill McKibben, Fazlun Khalid from Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Science, University College London's Paul Ekins, author Ann Pettifor and Good Energy's Juliet Davenport.

When: Monday, September 26 - Wednesday, September 28

Where: Murray Edwards College, Huntingdon Road, Cambridge

Cost: From £265 or £145 (day rate). Student discounts apply.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
