How Should the Church respond to the threat of Climate Change?
A Discussion concerning the call to disinvest from Fossil Fuel Companies
The campaign to disinvest from fossil fuel companies is gathering strength with universities, businesses, banks and religious groups choosing to respond to Climate Change by redirecting their investments away from fossil fuels.
Bracknell Deanery Synod recently considered a motion to disinvest. It came to the conclusion that the issues were complex, and arguments for and against multifaceted. To help its members to come to a considered decision, it elected to arrange an evening in which experts could set out various positions in some detail.
We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday, the 22nd of January 2014, at 7.30pm at the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, Warfield, four distinguished speakers will present arguments for and against disinvestment – including David Atkinson (former Bishop of Thetford), Mark Letcher (Director of Climate Works) and Dr James Corah (Secretary for Church Investors Group).
