This conference was organised by a number of Christian groups in Bristol who are concerned about Climate Change. Phil Kingston, a member of Grandparents for a Safe Earth spoke about the work of the group and about another group – Christian Climate Action – which like GFASE is also willing to take nonviolent direct action when dialogue does not bear fruit.
The keynote speaker was Archbishop Rowan Williams who spoke about Climate Change : A Matter of Faith which can be accessed at YouTube under https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoCB9iBzaMI
Phil had an opportunity over coffee to tell Archbishop Rowan about both of these groups. When he asked if the Archbishop was a grandparent, his reply was ‘Not yet!’
