Australia: Time for Living the Change events

You’re invited to join celebrations in every state for Time for Living the Change. Each event will have its own unique flavour but, at each event, people will share some time for spiritual reflection, discuss their efforts to make climate-conserving lifestyle commitments and celebrate with delicious vegetarian and vegan food. The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change invites you – if you can, please come along to these free events near you.
