How has COVID-19 profoundly influenced our understanding about the relationship between faith and the environment? In what ways can religions contribute towards sustained and impactful environmental action? What are some common spiritual values that can guide us when exploring pertinent environmental issues? And what lessons can COVID-19 offer to people of faith as well as environmentalists in a post-pandemic world?

Join our presenters, Prof Imtiyaz Yusuf and Dr Maria Habito, as well as our panellists, Guat Kwee See and Ow Yeong Wai Kit, as they delve into these crucial questions. Moderated by Mohamed Imran Mohamed Taib, this discussion session will discuss how religious voices play a crucial role in advocating for the structural changes demanded by environmentalist movements in a post-pandemic era.

You’d be most welcome to join us!
