Religion and the Environment

Location: Victoria College Chapel (91 Charles St W)

This event will foster multi-faith dialogue surrounding the environment, a topic that is too often overlooked from a modern faith perspective. We will challenge the siloed view of the environment as a secular issue and come to a common ground with other faith groups. Our end goal is to present attendees with faith-based environmental knowledge and highlight the connections and shared responsibility among different religions in order to encourage environmental consciousness in their daily lives.

  • Keynote speakers are:
    Dr. Simon Appolloni (Lecturer of Environmental Studies at UofT, research focus on Christianity and the environment)

  • Dr. Tanhum Yoreh (Professor of Environmental Studies and Religion- research focus on Judaism and the environment)

  • Dr. Deborah McGregor Associate Professor Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Environmental Justice

  • Ustadh Amjad Tarsin (Muslim Chaplain and Islamic Educator)
