Earth Day 2022: Life Force

In partnership with the Center for Earth Ethics, DJ Spooky and the Climate Museum

4:00pm Eastern Daylight Time

Live from James Chapel, Union Theological Seminary, NYC

This Earth Day, we are thinking about untapped creative power: the ways of thinking, doing and being that our commodified, globalized, fossil-fueled society tends to dominate and devour. Life Force is an opportunity for people to regenerate creativity while working toward a climate-safe future… Let’s spend an afternoon tending to the best of the human spirit, which is part and parcel of the life force that animates our planet.
