Join A Rocha International’s President and Founder, Peter Harris, for an engaging conversation about the current state of the planet, how Christians are engaging in environmental stewardship around the globe, and how business can play a critical role in the flourishing of the planet.
About Peter Harris
Peter and Miranda Harris moved to Portugal in 1983 to establish and run A Rocha’s first field study centre. Together with their four children they lived at the centre for twelve years until 1995 when the work was given over to the national leadership. They then moved to establish A Rocha France’s first centre near Arles, and lived there until 2010, providing coordination and giving leadership to the rapidly growing global movement. They are now back in the UK form where they work to support the A Rocha family around the world while being closer to their own, and not least their grandchildren. Their story is told in Under the Bright Wings (1993) and Kingfisher’s Fire (2008).
Enjoy lunch with Peter Harris as we dialogue and discuss both the challenges of Christian conservationists, as well as how business and the environment can journey well together.
