Beyond The Tipping Point? at Lambeth Palace, 21 March 2011
Stefan Skrimshire (LTI Honorary research fellow) was recently invited to speak at an Interfaith Forum on Sustainability for religious leaders and policy makers at Lambeth Palace. Jointly organised by Shrinking the Footprint (The Church of England national environmental campaign) and the London School of Jewish Studies, attendees and visitors included the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams, Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks and Lord Marland, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Energy & Climate Change.
Stefan's presentation, using a short clip from the LTI film, Beyond the Tipping Point?, was on the subject of “the theological bases of environmental stewardship”. The talk reflected on the language of apocalypse, time and eschatology in relation to climate change tipping points and what these meant for environmental stewardship.
A short film and written report from the event are coming soon from Shrinking the Footprint.
