Event Details

Can we have abundant life without trashing the planet?
And does it matter anyway?
Living a full life would be great, if we didn’t have to weigh it against the damage we do to the planet in the process. And looking after the planet would be great, if we didn’t have to weigh it against how well all the people on the planet can live. This talk asks if the situation should really be viewed as an “either/or” choice. It then suggests why, and how, we should think about looking after people and looking after the planet in terms of “both/and”.
About the speaker:
Dave Bookless co-founded A Rocha UK, where he is now Director for Theology, Churches & Sustainable Communities. He is also studying for a PhD at Cambridge University on biblical theology and biodiversity conservation.
