What is Ethos Environment?

A new blog with a new focus. My name is Mick Pope and I am the coordinator of the Ethos Environment think tank. This think tank is part of Ethos: The EA Centre for Christianity and Society. I have a PhD in meteorology and am about to start my Masters thesis in some aspect (TBA) of ecotheology.

This centre was formed by the Evangelical Alliance and the Zadok Institute for for Christianity and Society. The official homepage is here and the Facebook page is here.

As coordinator of the think tank it is my job to help organise activities that bring together the expertise we have access to, which included theologians, economists, actvists, aid and development workers and so on. It is very exciting the different range of skills and gifts God has blessed us with.

Three major events are coming up. On Nov 20th we have a workshop on biodiversity with speakers from Melbourne and Canberra. On March 4-5 next year, Dr Michael Northcott will speak on issues related to climate change, with a range of workshops by local experts. Think about whether or not you can come and possibly contribute. Later in the year we will have a national day of prayer and action on creation care.

As for this blog, I hope to update regularly with Ethos Environment update, books worth reading, documentaries, websites, latest research news and so on.

Sola Gloria Deo
