EcoCiv, the event organizer, describes the event: "This crisis we are facing is clearly a multi-faceted danger, but also an opportunity for reflection, collaboration, and growth. This webinar will examine both the challenges and the opportunities of the crisis from faith and interfaith perspectives. It features a coalition of interfaith leaders, who have led different interfaith and professional organizations, and who bring diverse kinds of knowledge and expertise. The webinar will be interactive, so that we can foster a dialogue which will, hopefully, be helpful."
