Connections between People and Nature: Climate Change
April 23, 2017 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church in Houston invites you to attend Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation, an environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2017 is Connections between People and Nature.
At the April 2017 web meeting, we welcome Professor Cymene Howe from Rice University, Anthropology, who will speak on Climate Change. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face collectively, globally and intergenerationally. While progress has been made to reduce carbon emissions in some sectors, there remains much, much more to be done. In this presentation, Professor Howe addresses the cultural and social dimensions of climate change as well as energy sources and their impacts.
A cultural anthropologist, Professor Howe is among a growing group of scholars who engage with questions of energy and environment from a sociocultural point of view, believing that solutions to our current ecological dilemmas lie not only in technological fixes but in understanding and reshaping the ways that we, as people, engage with the environment.
Professor Howe will address Connections between People and Nature from the perspective of anthropology on Sunday, Apr. 23 at 6 p.m. After her talk, there will be time for Q&A. If you would like to join this online conversation, please register and you will receive an invitation to the web meeting. Questions about this event may be addressed to Lisa Brenskelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
