Sutainability - An Episcopal Response

St. Paul’s Memorial, Charlottesville, is launching a program centered around the 2012 Diocesan Stewardship of Creation Conference that will study global sustainability.  The program will have three parts: (i) a free eight-week online course launching during the week of August 27, 2012, that is available through Coursera – Introduction to Sustainability – taught by Jonathan Tomkin, an Earth Sciences professor at the University of Illinois; (ii) weekly meetings during the course at St. Paul’s Memorial to discuss the study materials; and (iii) group attendance at the Diocesan Conference giving particular attention to the program segment concerned with challenges and opportunities to alleviate food insecurity, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
