"I used to think that top global environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change.
I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed, and apathy, and to deal with these we need a spiritual and cultural transformation."
- James Speth, Environmental advocate.
From Creation Care to Farming, this is the conference that will completely transform your perspective.
