A panel and discussion on how Christians can pursue biblically informed climate justice and economic renewal during and after COVID-19.

Have you asked yourself what you can do to see a ‘greener’ Canada after COVID-19? And if so, have you asked yourself what this has to do with the Bible?

Join the discussion to find out! Let’s learn, pray, and act!

In this webinar you’ll hear from a climate action engineer, an experienced policy analyst, a retired economics professor, and a program director at A Rocha Canada. Together, we will discuss policy changes and political actions that could change our world for the better.

This session will focus on:

  • Where we are: the current economy and our perspective as Christ followers.
  • 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.

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 Lewitt, 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.

Please invite your interested friends and family! We can help make a difference that could impact generations.

Hope to see you there!
