Summer School Programme & Form
June Action Card
This is the title of the Christians Aware Summer School which is to take place at Abbey House Glastonbury from July 20 - 25. But the same title could almost be given to the Pope's recent encyclical.
It calls for an ethical and economic revolution to prevent catastrophic climate change and growing inequality
It argues that humanityís exploitation of the planetís resources has crossed the Earthís natural boundaries, and that the world faces ruin without a revolution in hearts and minds. It takes further themes which the pope has raised earlier. Last year he told a meeting. ďAn economic system centred on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it. I think a question that we are not asking ourselves is: isnít humanity committing suicide with this indiscriminate and tyrannical use of nature? Safeguard creation because, if we destroy it, it will destroy us. Never forget this.Ē
The Summer School will discuss a number of related issues: Sustainable farming, Shrinking the footprint, Operation Noah, Fracking, the Climate Change Campaign, Economic exploitation of the Developing World. Details of the revised programme and booking form can be reached via the button below.
The June Action Card covers a similar topic "Tackling Climate Change and Promoting Sustainable Energy". Button below
