The 2013 Interfaith Conference of the Committee on Stewardship of Creation will explore, as a follow-on to its 2012 Conference, the challenges posed by agricultural sustainability and food insecurity for preservation of forests, protection of cropland, water resources, seas and oceans, and preservation of biodiversity. The Conference will explore how these issues of sustainability particularly affect Virginia and how those issues are connected to the broader moral and ecological concerns for global sustainability and environmental justice. 

Attendees should gain resources and inspiration for how their spiritual development and consumption choices can serve as models and can help shift Earth’s course toward a sustainable environment in which humanity and all creation can flourish.

Registration fee (payable by check) of $25/person ($20/person for multiple attendees from same church) includes sustainable lunch and program materials.
