Press Release: FH Sponsors Climate Change Event "Earthkeeping"

In our global work for sustainable development, Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada has witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of climate change on the most vulnerable. As a result, disaster risk reduction has become one of the four pillars of our development programming, and we share environmental best practices with our partner communities every opportunity we get.

FH Canada is, therefore, proud to announce that we are sponsoring Earthkeeping: A Climate for Change featuring renowned climate change expert, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe.



Researcher. Climate scientist. Christian. In these few words, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe seems to defy the stereotypical images that are so often thrust onto either camp in the climate change debate. So much so, that she was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and featured in Showtime’s Emmy award-winning series, Years of Living Dangerously.

On May 7, Dr. Hayhoe will be in Vancouver for one night only to share her experiences and distinct perspective at Earthkeeping: A Climate for Change, presented by A Rocha Canada and Regent College.

The event, set at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver, will be a unique opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading atmospheric scientists on both her research, and her faith. 

Dr. Hayhoe brings a unique voice to a widespread conversation. While she joins a long list of scientists working to educate people about climate change, she connects those facts to her values and offers a new take on how people can take action. - Markku Kostamo, President of A Rocha Canada

Vancouverites have played a significant role in Canada’s climate conversation, and we know they will thoroughly enjoy this event. Attendees will be offered an intimate conversation with not only an excellent lecturer, but an internationally recognized advocate for how climate science and faith can work together. - Jeffrey Greenman, President of Regent College.

Event Details Date: Thursday May 7, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM
Tickets: Tickets start at $20.





Special guests at the event will include Peter and Miranda Harris, founders of A Rocha International and musical guests Sheree Plett and Jeremy Eisenhauer.
