Many Faiths, One Goal: Addressing Climate Change
This is the second round of the fellowship, which was developed as a partnership between Duke Divinity School and Faith for our Planet, a non-governmental organization devoted to uniting faith communities around fighting the effects of climate change. The fellowship is co-hosted by Divinity Professor Norman Wirzba and Abdullah Antepli, associate vice provost and associate vice president for community-engaged teaching and research, and planned to run for several years annually.
Since that first meeting, Wirzba has been named Director of Research for the Duke Climate Commitment and Antepli has become leader of a new university Center for Community Engagement.
“Climate change is a global moral crisis at heart and should be studied and imagined as such by those who are working to make significant sustained solutions to this monumental challenge that humanity faces,“ Antepli said. “This fellowship is a modest attempt to model and exemplify such efforts.”
