At the First Jewish Climate Change Conference in 2015, JCAN was a lonely leader in bringing climate action to the Jewish community. Today, climate discussion is alive and well in the Jewish community. From the orthodox world to Dayenu’s chutzpah campaign, from the Big Bold Jewish Climate Fest to Arizona State University’s Judaism and climate change webinar, the conversation is growing and deepening.
The Third Jewish Climate Change Conference: Everything Is Connected, organized by the Jewish Climate Action Network of Massachusetts, will build on the momentum of recent gatherings and discussions that have galvanized Jews throughout the country to become more involved in fighting climate change. Everyone is invited to attend this year’s online Jewish Climate Change Conference. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of sessions related to advocacy, anti-racism and environmental justice, carbon reduction, spiritual resilience, communal adaptation, and soil and agriculture. The day-long event will be geared toward action solutions, strengthening the national Jewish climate action network, and integrating youth into our leadership. The conference will be national in scope and will also provide time for local issues and organizing.
The Third Jewish Climate Change Conference: Everything is Connected will bring Jewish climate activists from across the country together online for the purpose of providing not just vision and leadership but also a sense of community grounded in the Jewish value of tikkun olam, repair of the world. This year’s conference will nurture continued community growth and–as made visible by the pandemic— focus on all the connections and interconnections between and among climate change and other social justice issues, as well as the ways we need to organize to repair the world.
We are inviting Jewish climate leaders and others to bring to the conference a vast array of insights, tools, and actions regarding the intersectionality of the climate crisis with all the themes of the conference. Please send us your ideas!
Our goal is to build a strong national Jewish climate coalition that reaches across siloed enclaves. Our conference themes and subject areas are:
* Action solutions
* Advocacy at all levels
* Anti-racism/Environmental justice
* Building a national Jewish climate coalition
* Carbon reduction (includes transportation and divestment)
* Spiritual resilience
* Communal adaptation
* Soil and agriculture
