Why Climate Change Matters – (Lunchtime Event)

with Dr Ruth Valerio

Event Date: Tuesday 24 May 2022
Event Time:12:30 PM
Venue: St Martins in the Bullring, Edgbaston St, , Birmingham, B5 5BB

Are science and faith opposed to one another? Does science disprove the existence of God? Or, alternatively, are science and the Christian faith complementary partners, together helping us to understand the world and our place in it in the early 21st century? This series of talks will all be given by prominent scientists who are also Christians, explaining how their science and their Christian beliefs work together. 

COP26 has come and gone. Climate concerns have disappeared from our screens. So, is it back to business as usual? Dr Ruth Valerio is an environmentalist and social activist working for the Christian charity Tearfund. She has written extensively on justice, the environment and lifestyle issues, and will argue that climate change is not going away and that it matters for all of us, while uncovering how it all relates to her Christian faith.
