Pagans and the Environment: How Faith can save the Earth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join this panel discussion as we explore the ways that Environmental protection can be the unifying factor for many faiths. As Pagans, we honor the sacred essence and power of the earth. This belief unites us with others, and could be the unifying thread in a collective effort to save the earth. How can we foster this sense of community and co-operation? How can we support each other in these goals? This panel will explore the possibilities.

Here we are all together on this water planet with no place else to go. It's a round world--there is no"away."
