Climate Change and the Common Good: The Cultural Challenge

Date:

Time: to

Venue: 
St Faith's Chapel
Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral
Central London

St Paul's Cathedral is holding a public event in Responsible Business Week in partnership with the Diocese of London, to explore the behavioural, cultural and organisational changes needed to mitigate climate change, alongside a display of cultural expressions focusing on the issue. 

St Paul's Institute logoWhat role might local communities play in mitigating climate change, and how can each of us contribute? How do we build the political will needed to instigate effective change? Will innovation in the business sector emerge quickly enough? Can our arts and entertainment sectors help overcome a collective apathy towards action?

Speakers:

  • The Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury (keynote)

  • Stephen Howard, Chief Executive of Business in the Community

  • Laurence Brahm, Author and Social Entrepreneur

  • Bryony Worthington, Baroness Worthington and Founder of Sandbag

  • Chaired by the Revd Canon Prof. Richard Burridge, Dean of Kings College London

Following the panel discussion there will be a cultural space held in the crypt of St Paul's. This space will see a number of different organisations, artists and campaigners come together to showcase a range of cultural expressions and responses to climate change, from architecture to film, activism to fashion (and even a few games!).

This event is free to attend and open to all, but registration is essential.
