Conference ecoAmerica is hosting the 9th annual American Climate Leadership Summit (ACLS 2020).

The American Climate Leadership Summit 2020 will now be a 100% virtual live event! Join us each Thursday during the month of August for a series of live webcasts featuring thought-and-action-provoking topics and speakers in an engaging and interactive online experience. You’ll hear from our great speakers (plus a few new ones) focusing on the prescient climate topics updated to reflect our modern times. Each 3-hour webcast will include engaging conversation, Q+A with you the participants, and a few additional ways for you to engage, all the while we individually and collectively avoid air travel and reduce our carbon footprint.

If there was ever a time to make a difference on climate change, that time is now. Join us to connect on climate, with speakers and each other, and to move climate action in America forward during these unprecedented times. For information and to register, visit here.

Clergy Day: Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts Margaret will lead a morning workshop entitled,“Building Emotional and Spiritual Resilience in a Time of Intersecting Social and Ecological Challenges”  In the face of converging social and ecological crises, how do we ourselves maintain courage and hope? What spiritual practices and perspectives sustain us as we struggle to protect the web of life and to create a more just society?  Through a mix of presentations and small group conversations, this morning workshop will explore a framework for the heart to help us become compassionate, prophetic leaders who are willing and able to take up the mantle of moral leadership that this decisive moment in history requires.

Margaret will lead the annual two-day Campbell Preaching Workshop of the United Theological College (UTC) in Montreal, Quebec, in a program entitled “Preaching Gospel Hope in a Time of Climate Crisis.” Climate change is called the moral challenge of our time, yet many preachers avoid discussing it. Through a mix of presentations, small group conversation, and whole group discussion, we will discuss the spiritual/moral imperative to preach about climate change, identify obstacles to climate preaching, share the latest research on how to communicate about climate, discuss theological keystones, consider the links between climate, poverty, race, and other justice issues, and receive theological and homiletic resources.

October 23, 2020 to October 24, 2020
