A Science‐Faith Dialogue in the Indiana Heartland
Excerpt from the report (full download also available by clicking the document icon below):
Over a three‐week period in September‐October 2019, the advocacy group Concerned Scientists @ IU [Indiana University] developed and conducted a coordinated series of workshops that brought together scientists and members of several local faith communities to address the scientific, ethical, and religious dimensions of climate change and environmental stewardship. Participants included members of the scientific community involved in climate change research and advocacy, paired with religious leaders and congregants from five Evangelical churches in the area. The three workshops involved some 120 participants, culminating in a field‐based workshop and celebration conducted at McCormick’s Creek State Park. The project helped lay the groundwork for future collaboration and science‐faith dialogue in our local community.
