Whose Earth? – June 2012

In June Whose Earth? will be taking place at 6 venues across the UK to explore how Christians can live on God’s earth God’s way today.

In 1992 the world’s biggest ever political gathering – the Rio Earth Summit – marked one of the first times that world leaders met to discuss the environment. Twenty years later, they’re meeting again for Rio+20 to see how well they’ve done – and how much more they need to do.

Organised by A Rocha, Tearfund, New Frontiers and Jubilee+ the Whose Earth? events will examine Christian responses to environmental issues, including:

  • the Bible basis
  • the science behind the issues
  • how we can all play a part in responding, including calling on decision-makers to act to eradicate poverty in a way that protects the environment

Speakers include Dave Bookless (A Rocha International), Ruth Valerio and Andy Lester (A Rocha UK), Elaine Storkey and Matthew Frost (Tearfund).
