You are invited to attend a conference about a Christian perspective on nature conservatism in November.
The conference will run from the 14th to the 16th of November at Capernwray Lodge, Burradoo in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
There will be discussions on questions such as: 'what are Christians to think about the conservation of biodiversity?' and 'is Christianity really to blame for the widespread loss of plant and animal species and habitat destruction (as is commonly asserted) or does the Bible actually provide us with both the obligation and motivation to protect flora and fauna?'
The conference will also provide delegates with the opportunity to:
- meet other Christians interested in biodiversity conservation
- study what the bible says about managing the natural environment
- enjoy early morning bird watching at the wetland
- plant some trees and pull some weeds
- discuss conservation management issues in the field
- see what Christians around the world are doing to conserve biodiversity
- consider the role of the church in the future of Australia’s natural environment
Full conference attendance with all accommodation and meals provided at Capernwray Lodge will cost $210 (adults), $135 (children aged 3-11) and $150 (concession for students/pensioners).
