Shabbat program January 14, 2022 on Zoom
CLIMATE CHANGE – THE SPIRITUAL AND FINANCIAL CHOICE OF YOUR LIFETIME
Guest speaker: Amy Larkin
Whether you view Nature as God’s ultimate creation, or man’s dominion, or as the astonishing wonder of the spiritual and physical realm, Nature is under grave threat.
The extraordinarily complex web of life is dying around us, and as fixing it will interrupt our convenience, pleasure and finances, we largely ignore this suffering
We must join with others to protect the natural world.We must use our money to protect the natural world. We must offer these forces to the youth of the world fighting for their future.
Amy Larkin, an award-winning entrepreneur, activist and producer, has been at the forefront of the environmental movement for decades. Her 2013 book, Environmental Debt: the Hidden Costs of a Changing Global Economy, revealed the links between our environmental and financial crises — both causes and solutions — and predicted the astronomical costs of climate chaos. Her subsequent positions include Vice Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Climate Change, Greenpeace Solutions Director, and founder of PR3, an initiative to reduce plastic production and consumption.
Amy regularly speaks to diverse audiences around the world on climate change and its relationship to business, culture, and spirituality.
A Shabbat service at 7:30 PM precedes the program. The Zoom link will be emailed to CHJ members earlier that week. Non-members who send an email to email@example.com will also receive the zoom invitation.
