Planet in Crisis

The Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach, which was founded in 1985 as the national advocacy office for the Missionary Society of St. Columban in the United States, will have a webinar on September 8 to discuss what about our social and economic systems need to change and how we can help make that change a reality. 

From the announcement:

Drought. Wildfires. Flooding. Mass extinction of species extinction. Water contamination. Land displacement.

These and other signs of crisis are happening for everyone to see. But how did we get here - what are the "root causes" of this crisis - and how can we change course in order to build a more joyful, sustainable future?
The free webinar begins at 8:00 p.m. and will be 90 minutes long. It is called Planet in Crisis: What are the Root Causes & Solutions? 

The panelists are Cynthia Gonzalez, Advocacy Coordinator (Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach); John Din, National Coordinator (Laudato Si' Movement-Pilipinas); and Marianne Comfort, justice coordinator for Earth, antiracism, and women (Sisters of Mercy of the Americas).

Registration is here.
