The 2018 Faith & the Environment Conference will centre on the theme of ‘Climate change and coast’. 

The conference will consider the significance of climate change in relation to sea-level rise and storm surges and their impacts on our coastal county, wider society and economy, and also globally, through increased flooding and erosion.  There will also be consideration of how, as people of faith, we might respond as we seek to love the planet and its people.
