On February 5th, the Church of the Holy Resurrection in Brookville will host the inaugural Project Generation Environmental Symposium, which will allow the youth of our Direct Archdiocesan District to participate in an event inspired by the Symposia on Religion, Science and the Environment that have been held by His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew. His Grace Bishop Savas will be moderating the debate and discuss segments of the program.
Project Generation is intended to respond to Patriarch Bartholomew’s call to our younger generation to assume responsibility for our earth
Raise awareness regarding His All Holiness’s leadership role in caring for our environment highlight, for our youth and their families, the relevance of our church in our lives, as they learn that the environmental issues highlighted in the media and their curricula includes a spiritual component.
Orthodox teens may participate by choosing one or more of three options: (a) research and present a relative topic on the environment; (b) engage in a debate with their peers; (c) participate in a round table discussion on key issues related to Orthodoxy and the Environment. Friends, family and all others are encouraged to attend, both to encourage the participants and to learn about their insights.
The symposium will begin at 11:00 AM, and is expected to run 2-3 hours, including a break during which lunch will be served. Additional information is available on the project website at http://www.projectgeneration.net. Those interested in participating are encouraged to sign-up via the web site or on Facebook.
