Live Laudato Si’ with fossil fuel divestment decisions: the prophetic stand of Australian Catholic organizations
When: Thursday, February 15, 5 pm Australia/ 7am GMT
What: This webinar will help you to understand the practical implications of taking a prophetic stand in relation to financial investments in energy and the move away from fossil fuels as a way to live Laudato Si’. On the basis of their own experiences, key people in two Australian Catholic organisations will give more detail on how they are managing effective implementation of their organisation's divestment decisions.
Implementation can be somewhat complex in the Australian context. To answer questions from the viewing audience, the two presenters will then be joined by Fiona Thomas, a financial adviser with Ethinvest, a local firm established by a Christian which specialises in environmentally responsible investment.
