Sacred Responses to Climate Change: Seeking Common Ground 

This inter-faith panel discussion focuses on sacred responses to environmental crisis and especially climate change. Panelists will discuss how religious ethics are shaping environmental ethics and can offer bases for strong action in response to the global environmental challenges we face, as well as the social challenges associated with environmental crisis. Speakers will address the topic from Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Indigenous perspectives. Panelists include:

Tink Tinker (Osage), Professor Emeritus, Iliff School of Theology

Loriliai Biernacki, Professor, Religious Studies CU Boulder

Sam Boyd, Associate Professor, Religious Studies CU Boulder

Nana Firman, Muslim Outreach Director, Green Faith

Christinia Eala, (Lakota), Director, Tiyospaye Winyan Maka

Lindsay Garcia, Director of Communications at Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) and Young Evangelicals for Climate Action (YECA)

David Takahashi, GreenFaith Fellow.

Each panelist will present on the topic from their particular perspective, for approximately 15 minutes. We will then have a break, followed by a moderated discussion among the panelists, expanding then to a moderated discussion including questions from audience members.This event is sponsored by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies,  Department of Religious Studies, Environmental Studies and Ethnic Studies.
