Event Description

Village Vancouver presents a FREE talk by Chris Philpott on Green Spirituality. Chris is from Transition Leamington Spa in England and the author of Green Spirituality.

Green Spirituality wants to alert people of this planet to the perils that face us all, and to show that, if we are prepared to heed the teachings of ancient and modern spiritual wisdom, we can still face the future positively.  The presentation will be a combination of detailed information about global environmental problems and world poverty, along with solutions to those problems rooted in the spiritual teachings of different traditions.

Chris Philpott has been a Green Activist for more than twenty-eight years. He has campaigned on local and national green issues such as recycling and climate change, and has been involved in organizing community activities relating to whole food, recycling, gardening  and conservation, local economic trading (LETS), meditation, Transition Towns, interfaith and green spirituality groups. Chris comes from a Christian and Buddhist background, and was affected deeply by the surge of interest in spirituality during the 1970s. He has always read widely, and maintains an interest in all the world's spiritual traditions. He has given talks on Green Spirituality at the U.K. Green Party National conferences, the Big Green Gathering, the Climate Camps, the Campaign against Climate Change Forums and the Birmingham Inter-faith group. He is also an experienced and enthusiastic performer, his skills including public speaking and clowning, as well as writing and performing Eco music with a band appropriately named 'The Eco Worriers'.
