Beach United Church, 140 Wineva Ave, Toronto
Faith & the Common Good’s Greening Sacred Spaces and the Toronto United Church Council’s Green Awakening Network invite you to join us for our 2014 Annual Forum.
The theme of the 2014 forum is "Divestment or What? Economic Tools for Creation Advocacy in a Time of Crisis" and its purpose is to create a space where we can openly explore the dilemma presented by our personal and institutional enmeshment in a fossil-fuel based economy. The ‘Do the Math’ campaign has highlighted for many of us the disastrous environmental consequences of continued reliance on fossil fuels – and yet many of our private and institutional investment strategies are built around that reliance. What is the way forward?
Confirmed keynote speakers include Rev. Fletcher Harper, Executive Director of GreenFaith and Jane Ambachtsheer, Partner and Global Head of Responsible Investment at Mercer.
Registration Cost: $15 (includes light refreshments)
