Lead Bishop for Environment delivers St Paul’s keynote speech on climate change challenge
16 April 2015
Half a year into his new role as lead bishop for Environmental Affairs, the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury, will give a keynote speech at St Paul’s Cathedral exploring the behavioural and organisational changes needed to mitigate climate change.
At a St Paul’s Institute event, in partnership with the Diocese of London, Bishop Holtam will be joined by a panel of prominent business and political leaders to explore the role that culture can play in overcoming the challenge of climate change, and how we can best harness a collective response across multiple levels of society.
What role might local communities play, 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 arts and entertainment help overcome apathy towards action?
The panel discussion will be followed by a cultural space held in the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral. This space will see different organisations (including Tearfund, ShareAction, Eco Action Games, the Ethical Fashion Forum and the Climate Change Coalition) join artists, authors and architects to showcase a range of cultural responses to climate change.
