We’re thinking about community responses to climate change this month at Sunday Assembly Edinburgh. Our speaker is Adrian Shaw, Climate Change Officer at… the Church of Scotland. While we are definitely a secular congregation, we are very interested to hear about Adrian’s work in engaging folk across Scotland in getting into concerted action. He writes:
“Why is climate change such a critical issue and why should we be concerned? Donald Trump looks the other way, Britain is self-absorbed in Brexit and the new Brazilian President talks of renewing the clearance of the Amazon rainforest. Yet this issue will not go away and scientists, perhaps the prophets of the modern age, say that there is big trouble ahead. What are some of the issues and how should we respond?”
Adrian is also a Director of Awesome Energy (Dalriada) a community energy company developing and managing a new hydro-electric scheme in Argyll. He has been a director of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and is also a member of the climate change group of the World Council of Churches. This promises to be a fascinating assembly.
We will also have our usual mix of pop songs to sing with the house band, poetry from Laura Woodland, Claire will be ‘doing her best’, there will be reflection time, the chance to meet others and of course cake. Family (and dog) friendly, fun and free to attend. Join us at Lifecare Edinburgh, 2 Cheyne St, Stockbridge EH4 1JB to celebrate life!
