Greening Faiths


Two of us from St John's (Jan and I) have been involved in organising what looks to be a really exciting multi faith day conference. Today was our final meeting so now we just need to wait for more people to sign up. Here are the details:

Reading Faith Forum, supported by Stronger Together, will host the Greening Faiths conference on 4th April 9.30am-3pm at The Warehouse, Cumberland Road, Reading to discuss environmental concerns from a faith perspective and promote sustainable living in faith communities.

This unique meeting of local people with many different spiritual beliefs will highlight the scientific facts behind the current environmental crisis and suggest how faith communities can work together to address the issue.

Speakers include: Jagdeesh Singh of the Sikh Environment Network; Muzammal Hussain from the London Islamic Network for the Environment (LINE); Hindu Monastic Swami Ambikananda Ji and Rev Ian James, formerly from Reading University’s Department of Meteorology, who is also the C of E Diocese of Oxford’s Environment Advisor.

This event is free and there will be opportunities for networking over a free lunch. Please book by Friday 27 March 2009 as spaces are limited, so please book now to ensure your place.
