Event description

Description

The CREATE Conference: An interdisciplinary conversation about environmental sustainability

Bringing business and faith communities together to discuss the ethics and practice of implementing sustainability in daily life.

Civic organizations—businesses, non-profits, and faith congregations—are reshaping society’s environmental culture. They are making sustainability more profitable, practical, pressing, and popular. The CREATE Conference aims to equip emerging leaders for the work of green culture change and enhance the skillsets of established leaders. Plenary sessions will orient participants to the long-term, cross-sector impacts of sustainability activism; leading sustainability scholars will offer 30,000 ft. views of environmental culture change and orient participants to their respective roles in it. Panels will discuss alternative strategies to environmental culture change such as art, education, built environments, and civil partnerships. Workshops will equip participants with tools to implement these strategies in their own contexts.

With Keynotes featuring:

Dr. Andrew J. Hoffman, Holcim (US) Professor of Sustainable Enterprise, University of Michigan

Rabbi Ellen Bernstein, Campus Rabbi at Hampshire College and founder of Shomrei Adamah, Keepers of the Earth

Beth Reemes, The Work that Reconnects, GIPL Education Committee, and Unity Worldwide Ministry's Earth Care Team
