On Sunday, March 15, Temple Sholom, in partnership with the City of Vancouver’s Sustainability team, will host a Multi-Faith Dialogue on the Climate Emergency. We’ll begin with small-group discussions exploring various faiths’ texts related to our responsibility to tend to nature and the planet.

Next, we’ll explore this topic further in a panel discussion moderated by CBC Radio’s Stephen Quinn and featuring Rabbi Dan Moskovitz, Imam Mohammad Shujaath Ali, Sister Maria Serra Garcia and, from the Hindu community, Dr. Suresh Kurl.

We will end in small-group discussions where attendees will provide feedback to help shape the 19 bold actions the City of Vancouver is considering to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions, while learning about actions individuals can take to lessen their impact. Feedback collected will help shape the Climate Emergency Action Plan that will be presented to Vancouver City Council in October 2020.
