In the last few years I have been devoting my life to my passion: drawing on my background to bring together people, information and ideas for game-changing visions and strategies to help us survive and thrive in the face of climate change and other ecological crises. After a few years helping a range of causes at various levels, I now have greater clarity about where I can make the biggest differences.
I now focus on building the leadership that people of faith are increasingly taking in calling for greater connection with our precious world and each other, and particularly for serious action to protect our world’s ability to sustain life as we know it. I am particularly working on engaging and mobilising people of diverse faiths in the lead-up to and beyond the Paris climate talks. I do this at local, national and international levels, mainly with Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC). I help the ARRCC Chair with the heavy lifting on advocacy and growing ARRCC’s connections, engagement of contacts, effectiveness and sustainability. I am the faith coordinator for the Canberra People’s Climate March and link with organisations like OurVoices, The People’s Pilgrimage, FastForTheClimate, Green Anglicans.
