Reimagining Hope - Hobart LIVE

Taking climate change to The Edge
18 Mar 2021

We are taking climate change to The Edge and there is nothing like hope to reboot your year.

Even though the topic of climate science can carry with it a dire message at times, we are going to give this discussion a dash of hope

One of Australia's former Prime Ministers once declared climate change to be the "greatest moral challenge of our generation." Yet, some within our culture feel that we have not risen to this challenge, which leaves many of us to see humanity's future as bleak. Is there hope amidst the challenge of climate change? How can we navigate an uncertain and fragile future? And can the Christian faith bring anything to the table?

We take this discussion beyond the edge by going to the ends of the earth. Join us to hear short, punchy and interesting talks from our two speakers. You'll also be able to send through your questions for an interactive Q & A discussion afterwards.

Matt King (Professor of Polar Geodesy, University of Tasmania) will consider how to reimagine hope within the subject of climate change with his vast experience in Antarctica. 

Mikey Lynch (University Fellowship of Christians) will come at it from a philosophical/theological angle, sharing why we don't have to give in to despair or rage in the face of a potentially grim future.

Ella Hickey will be our moderator, and will ensure there will be plenty of time for questions throughout the evening, so you can take both speakers to the Edge.
