Floridan: Water Is Our Life
The Floridan Aquifer is the source of Florida’s water. Water is our life, and all religious traditions use water symbolically in rituals. We are bound together by water. We are water. Protecting water sources is self-preservation as well as the preservation of Florida’s bio-diversity. Who are Florida’s water-protectors? How shall people of faith and conscience respond?
John Moran, award winning photographer and co-director of the Springs Eternal Project will deliver the keynote address on Friday, April 28, 10:00 am.
NEW DATE: The third annual Florida Interfaith Climate Action Network is scheduled for April 28, 2017, at First United Methodist Church, 142 East Jackson Street, Orlando. This year’s assembly will lift up how the theme “water is life” is reality in Florida, from the precious Floridan Aquifer to the river of grass flowing into the Everglades to the rising seas along the beaches, and the estuaries threatened by runoff and salinization, plus the growing threat of fracking. Florida development projects a population increase of 15 million people by 2070, nearly doubling the current 20 million. Florida is already experiencing water issues; imagine 35 million residents fighting for clean water.
This Assembly will give participants a working knowledge of Florida’s critical water system issues and will provide opportunity for participants to collaborate in networks with other to protect Florida water.
