This is to let you know about an exciting event we are organising as
part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival.
“Cosmologies, Faith and the Environmental Crisis” will explore how
different religion’s understanding of the universe affects how
believers treat the environment.
Chaired by Dr Jeremy Kidwell of The University of Edinburgh, speakers
Dr Fazlun Khalid of the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and
Environmental Studies and Dr Mark Harris of the School of Divinity at
The University of Edinburgh will explore how the cosmologies of the
world’s religions affect human behaviour, and what this means for
evidence-based science. This will be followed by an open discussion
with the audience.
This event takes place at 8pm on Saturday 19th April 2014, at the
auditorium, National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh.
We would be delighted to see there.
