Understanding Our Climate Crisis


The "Understanding Our Climate Crisis" lecture series was led by Dr. Henry Brouwer, regional coordinator for the CRC Climate Witness Project. Dr. Brouwer attends Meadowlands CRC in Hamilton, Ontario. 

This lecture series is part of a campaign put together by the CRC Office of Social Justice, The Center for Public Dialogue, and World Renew. The series was designed to help congregations as they learn about the realities of climate change, seek to be better stewards of the resources given, and as they find their voice to speak to public officials about common sense climate policy that will benefit the earth, people around the world who are poor and vulnerable, and future generations. 

You can view the full length lectures, detailed slide information, and a full list of energy saving suggestions below.
