“Food for Thought” (Zoom-based) Talk Climate Change: Global Crisis to Local Solutions By Mark Johnson of Christian Aid St Luke’s is grateful to have a speaker of Mark Johnson’s calibre and knowledge of how Climate Change has gradually impacted the security and livelihood of the poorest people on our planet. Christian Aid has given much thought in recent years about how this global crisis can be reacted to at a personal level and creating local solutions. And Mark’s talk will focus on the situation across our world related to climate change and move from a wider global perspective through to the more local straight forward actions individuals - that’s us - can take. The talk will help us to understand - and later discuss - some of the biggest dilemmas in play and challenge us by setting out what we - as individuals - will have to change in our behaviour and levels of consumption if we really are going to be part of the solution. Mark has spent over twenty-five years working in various faith-based organisations ranging from publishing and retail through to his present role in the justice and aid sector with Christian Aid. He holds a PhD from the University of St Andrews where he looked at the place of the imagination between theology and arts with a particular focus on the synoptic gospels. After Mark’s talk, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss some of the main messages arising and engage with Mark. The audience will be encouraged to support the work done by Christian Aid to eradicate poverty by sending them a donation after the Talk.
