About This Event

In his new film "Noah," Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky explores issues of faith and environmentalism. As the threat of climate change becomes more apparent, faith advocates are providing a crucial moral voice to call for responsible stewardship of the planet and its creatures. They are joining forces with environmental allies at the local, state, and national levels to bring about personal and policy changes that respond to climate change. Please join the Center for American Progress, The Sierra Club, and Climate Desk for a discussion of the themes within "Noah" and the larger intersection of environmentalism and faith-based advocacy and collaborations in combating climate change.
