Ecology Series Part 1: Exploring Ecology and Eco-spirituality.

What is ecology? What does it look like in Aotearoa and around the planet? What is our role in protecting it? How is ecology linked with spirituality? This session will remind us of the connectedness of all creation, and our role as kaitiaki (guardians).

We will reflect on our own spiritualities in light of the thought of spiritual writers, eco-theologians and Laudato Si!

Presenter: Mary Betz

Fee: $15 including morning tea.

The crisis facing the Pacific through the lens of Laudato Si…

Rising sea levels and ocean temperatures are threatening many Pacific Island Nations. Bridget will explore the ocean and eco-system around Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific.

What are the challenges that humanity is facing from climate change and how can we support our neighbours in the Pacific? Bridget has been following the impact of climate change in the Pacific and will be sharing some of her experiences.
