10TH Annual Oregon Interfaith Earth Summit (Hybrid) Care For Our Common Home

10TH Annual Oregon Interfaith Earth Summit (Hybrid) Care For Our Common Home: Building Neighborhoods for Climate Resilience – Sunday, February 5, 1-5:30 pm

The tenth annual Oregon Interfaith Earth Summit will take place in faith communities all over Oregon on February 5, 2023! We are experimenting with a hybrid Oregon Interfaith Earth Summit this year: individuals will attend in person at a faith community in their part of the state. Part of the event will be on Zoom, with everyone watching from their regional locations. The rest of the time, local hosts will facilitate relationship-building and learning with other people of faith in your region who care about the environment and climate justice. Each regional gathering will end with a climate vigil at 5 pm.

Host locations register before the end of 2022. Registration for individuals will be available in January so you can select the closest location. To sign up to host a summit location or to volunteer please visit this website: emoregon.org.
