“Climate Change as an Avenue for Finding Common Ground with Others” Forum will be held at Sanctuary
“Climate Change as an Avenue for Finding Common Ground with Others” Forum
The first part of this panel discussion will focus on enlisting people of different races, religions, cultures, and beliefs into the effort for a stable climate. So doing will require visualizing a truly inclusive movement and recognizing what it would mean for those who would strive to participate while having to struggle just to survive. Part 2 will explore the bonding that we hope will inspire us to come to each other’s aid in a time of crisis. Climate change will ultimately impact all of us, irrespective of nationality, and economic and class status. Citizens may have to adopt new behavior patterns, including the willingness to relinquish privilege and advantage, if they are to come together in the face of adversity.
