Talking climate with kids and youth.

Younger generations walk with the reality that their entire lives will be shaped by the changed (and changing) global climate. Watch Sandy Plett (MC Canada Climate Action Coordinator) in conversation with Kathy Giesbrecht, Wendy Janzen, Kyle Penner, and Jonathan Seiling about spiritual care for young people in the climate crisis. This Zoom conversation was inspired by a shared study of In Deep Waters by Talitha Amadeo Aho.
