Join Ask & Wonder for a guided conversation about climate change, religion, and pathways towards a sustainable future. Dr. Jonathan Gilligan (Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Vanderbilt University), Mr. Micah Redding (Executive Director of the Christian Transhumanist Association), Dr. Zdravka Tzankova (Professor of Sociology at Vanderbilt University), and Dr. David Padgett (Professor of Geography at Tennessee State University) will address questions like:
What is climate change and how do we know that it’s happening?
How is climate change impacting people now, and how is it expected to impact the lives of future generations?
What does climate change mean from a religious standpoint, in terms of caring for God’s creation?
What can we all do to help ensure a sustainable, desirable future?
What does this mean for society?
Expert presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion and questions from the audience.
