Faith in Place is hosting the 7th Annual Green Team Summit. This year's event will be held virtually with local watch parties in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. The four-day event, to be hosted September 11-14th, will feature a series of panels, workshops, and a keynote address with the renowned climate scientist Dr. Katherine Hayhoe. Dr. Hayhoe connects the dots between her faith and her expertise in climate science in a way that leaves communities hopeful and more connected. Faith in Place is a nonprofit organization that empowers people of all faiths to be leaders in caring for the Earth. At the summit Faith in Place will engage faith and spiritual leaders from across the Midwest—connecting communities to environmental justice, healing, and climate resilience.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, is the chief climate scientist for The Nature Conservancy and a distinguished professor and chair at Texas Tech University. She can often be found talking to people about why Climate Change matters and what we can do to fix it!
