"Attendees will be offered an intimate conversation with not only an excellent lecturer, but an internationally recognized advocate for how climate science and faith can work together."

Researcher. Climate scientist. Christian. In these few words, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe seems to defy the stereotypical images that are so often thrust on to either camp in the climate change debate. So much so that she was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and featured in Showtime’s Emmy award-winning series, Years of Living Dangerously. On May 7, Dr. Hayhoe will be in Vancouver for one night only to share her experiences and distinct perspective at Earthkeeping: A Climate for Change, presented by A Rocha Canada and Regent College.

The event, set at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver, will be a unique opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading atmospheric scientists on both her research, and her faith.

“Dr. Hayhoe brings a unique voice to a widespread conversation,” says Markku Kostamo, President of A Rocha Canada. “While she joins a long list of scientists working to educate people about climate change, she connects those facts to her values and offers a new take on how people can take action.”

“Vancouverites have played a significant role in Canada’s climate conversation, and we know they will thoroughly enjoy this event,” says Jeffrey Greenman, President of Regent College. “Attendees will be offered an intimate conversation with not only an excellent lecturer, but an internationally recognized advocate for how climate science and faith can work together.”

Special guests at the event will include Peter and Miranda Harris, founders of A Rocha International and musical guests Sheree Plett and Jeremy Eisenhauer.
