National Conference
Just Creation - Shalom for Our Common Home

Following environmental concerns brought about by last month’s train derailment in Ohio, Columbia Theological Seminary, is offering a national conference, focused on environmental justice, the conference brings together nationally known theologians, scientists, activists, and artists to reflect on ways for the church to move forward during a time of precipitous climate change, catastrophic loss of biodiversity and rapid proliferation of pollutants, especially as the costs of such changes are distributed inequitably around the world. The conference is available both in person and online.

Voyager Scholarship: Obama-Chesky Scholarship For Public Service
Applications are due by March 22

Shaping the next generation of public service leaders - An increasingly globalized world needs young leaders who can bridge divides and help solve our biggest challenges together.
The Voyager Scholarship was created by the Obamas and Brian Chesky, Airbnb Co-founder, and CEO, to help shape such leaders. Even though they come from different backgrounds, both the President and Brian believe that exposure to new places and experiences generates understanding, empathy, and cooperation which equips the next generation to create meaningful change.
This scholarship gives college students financial aid to alleviate the burden of college debt, meaningful travel experiences to expand their horizons, and a network of mentors and leaders to support them.
