Faith in a Basin Future
A Dialogue Evening Exploring Integral Ecology in the Basin
The communities of the Murray-Darling Basin are experiencing social, economic and environmental challenges from land and water management reforms, changing terms of trade, changing population dynamics and climate change. “Faith in a Basin Future”, an ecumenical project, seeks to work with and through local churches and partners to develop strategies for positive, vital and resilient futures.
Pope Francis in Laudato Si’ says: “The environment is part of a logic of receptivity. It is on loan to each generation, which must then hand it on to the next. An integral ecology is marked by this broader vision.” (159)
Integral ecology is inseparable from the common good. It is the interconnectedness of environmental, social, economic, political, cultural, spiritual and ethical issues. Integral Ecology necessitates the ability to think holistically about solutions to a crisis that is neither environmental nor human but is one bound together.
The vision of Faith in a Basin Future is of all God’s people nurturing the natural, human and economic systems of the Murray-Darling Basin and sharing its fragile and abundant ecology in sustainable ways for future generations.
We invite you to join us for dialogue on this new project.
Speakers: Dr. John Williams, Jacqui Remond & Assoc. Prof. Sarah Wheeler
