The Great Pivot: Creating Meaningful Work to Build a Sustainable Future
The Ministry of Social Concerns is sponsoring an event presenting new and creative solutions to the challenges of climate change. Justine Burk, author of The Great Pivot: Creating Meaningful Work to Build a Sustainable Future, will speak. The U.S. faces three major challenges: Americans hunger for meaningful work; our energy, transportation, food systems, and consumer economy are not sustainable; and the financial sector needs more green investment opportunities.
The Great Pivot bridges the gap between these seemingly disparate issues and provides a blueprint for 30 projects in energy, transportation, the circular economy, food waste production, and the restoration of nature, which together will create millions of meaningful jobs. Many of us feel it is imperative that we pivot from “business as usual” toward building a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations. We have the talent and resources – author Burt challenges us to find the courage to commit to it! In the process of saving the planet, we just may save ourselves.
Join us on Saturday, April 27, 2019, 1:30 – 3:00 p.m., in the Fellowship Hall. The thirty-minute presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers, then 30 minutes of break-out discussions.
