From Texas to Lancaster: Challenges with Food, Water, and Fracking

Join panels from both Lancaster and Baylor (Texas) to discuss the challenges of our current ecological crisis.

This Global Futures Event will be live streaming with Baylor University as part of the Ecology and Religion in 19th Century Studies Conference. Activists and academics based in the two major regions linked by this conference (Texas, North West England) will explore issues of environmental challenge and justice, including healthy/sustainable food, water quality and use, and the impacts of hydraulic fracturing. The discussion will also consider how religion and spirituality could inform approaches to these problems.
