What’s Next? Imagining the Next Twenty Years of Environmental Stewardship

October 15, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm


October 15, 2017
2:00 am - 4:00 pm


First Presbyterian Church

Columbia, MD 21045 United States

How shall we pro­tect and restore the earth for its own sake, and for future use and enjoy­ment of its beauty and fruit­ful­ness? This ques­tion is not only about policy-making, but also about lifestyle choices, and about whose voices are heard.

Can we imag­ine what we can accom­plish in the next twenty years? And can we sketch out what it will take from each of us, and from our com­mu­ni­ties to be effec­tive stewards?

Come be part of a dis­cus­sion about the choices before us, and the future we need to imag­ine together. A panel of guests will get us think­ing, encour­age our con­ver­sa­tion, and per­haps help us find a lit­tle clar­ity in what seems like an over­whelm­ing chal­lenge these days. Pan­elists include regional and national envi­ron­men­tal plan­ners, edu­ca­tors, advo­cates, and pol­icy developers.

One of the Empha­sis Action groups will be a Tree Plant­ing Work­shop offered by the Inter­faith Part­ners for the Chesa­peake – part of the Trees for Sacred Places. Learn about native species, how to plant and care for newly planted trees, and how trees con­tribute to the health of air and water.

The Earth Forum is hosted by the First Pres­by­ter­ian Church of Howard County, 9325 Pres­by­ter­ian Cir­cle, Colum­bia, MD  21045.  Free and open to all inter­ested per­sons, con­tact earthforum@firstpreshc.org, call 410−730−3545 (church office), or see  the Face­book page.
