Interfaith EnvironmentalThe Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston invites you to their 2018 Kick-Off Event at the University of St. Thomas. We will hear from faith leaders of a variety of faiths on the relationship between their faith and the natural world. There will be a presentation on the top ten free environmental resources for houses of worship. We will recap activities from 2017, and discuss plans for 2018. You’ll get an opportunity to provide your input into 2018 planning via a survey. And, we ask those who can do so to bring some snacks to share for our break-out sessions, during which we’ll get to know each other better.

We’ll provide beverages to accompany the snacks. People of all faiths are encouraged to attend, as are representatives of local environmental non-profits that would like to work with people of faith on environmental issues. Please join us! This event will take place at the University of St. Thomas, 3800 Montrose Blvd.  Metro buses lines 82, 56 and 25 stop nearby.

Please register for this event for planning purposes.  The Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston seeks to empower the faith community in Houston to advocate and act collectively as stewards of the environment by (a) fostering a strong connection between the rich faith community of greater Houston and Houston-area environmental organizations in order to reach shared goals and by (b) empowering their members to advocate and take action on behalf of the environment.
