The Engaging Active Hope workshop series explores practical ways to address climate change. The series draws on the work of the eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and is about finding and offering our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. At the heart of this workshop series is the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have. It involves being clear about what we hope for and then playing our role in the process of bringing that about. The journey of finding and offering our unique contribution to the Great Turning helps us to discover new strengths, open to a wider network of allies and experience a deepening of our aliveness.
Rev. Alison Cornish is Executive Director of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light, a statewide organization of communities and individuals of faith responding to climate change as an urgent moral issue.
