‘Water Justice’ – An annual theological conference
Water is a gift. Water is life. As water crises increase, access to safe and clean drinking water decreases.
From Flint to Standing Rock, many of today’s most pressing social issues revolve around water. Faith communities worldwide can help.
You’re invited to attend Trinity Institute, an annual conference that takes place in New York City and at partner sites around the world via webcast, including at St. John’s Cathedral. With a sharp focus on the need for water justice initiatives in areas of access, droughts, pollution, rising tides, and flooding, Trinity Institute aims to offer actionable guidance for individuals, congregations, and the larger faith community surrounding these issues. This year we’ll hear from Jeffrey Sachs, Christiana Peppard, Winston Halapua, Thabo Makgoba, Katharine Hayhoe, Maude Barlow, Kim Stanley Robinson, and others.
Join the water justice movement! We’ll develop a deeper appreciation for water as a sacred gift, gain a thorough understanding of the relationship between water justice and climate change, and learn what we can do about water issues of access, pollution, drought, and rising sea levels.
