Lead Bishop for Environment delivers St Paul’s keynote speech on climate change challenge

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.
