Queensland: Living the Change in Brisbane

Join us to celebrate LIVING THE CHANGE in Brisbane where Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black will give an address “Our responsibility to our World“, folowed by discussion at the South Brisbane Jewish Congregation Synagogue, Greenslopes on Sunday, October 14th. Living the Change is brought to you by Australian Religious Response to Climate Change, Religions for Peace Australia and United Religions Initiative.


You are warmly invited to the morning session at 10.30 am, starting with a talk by Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black, “Our responsibility to our World“, and discussion.

The Living the Change part of the day starts at 12 noon with a vegan lunch. People around the world are participating in a faith-led initiative to allow behaviour change to make it more possible for life to continue flourishing. We are each making reasonably ambitious lifestyle changes in the areas of transport, diet and/or energy use and will be sharing our triumphs and struggles.

Join us in sharing what inspires us from our various faith traditions, the teachings and values that challenge us to live the change. Each of us can make a difference; each of us is important. Together we can make a real impact on the biosphere and, at the same time, collectively challenge the rampant consumerism driving the climate crisis.
