“What Would Jesus Eat?” – Young Christian Climate Network 2023 Campaign Launch

Food is an essential part of life, and yet it is also something we often take for granted! Join us for an evening of conversation as we take some time to consider the question ‘What Would Jesus Eat?’

We’ll be joined by:

Professor Rachel Muers, Chair of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh:

Professor Rachel has been the principal investigator on the research project ‘Vegetarianism as Spiritual Choice in Historical and Contemporary Theology’, and is co-author of ‘Theology on the menu: asceticism, meat and Christian diet’. She will help us consider the changing Christian practices and the theological implications they have for us today.

Jessica Bwali, Global Campaigns Associate, Tearfund:

Jessica is an award-winning journalist, a climate activist and an entrepreneur. She has been a delegate at COP26 & 27 and uses her platform to bring attention to the climate challenges faced in her home country Zambia. Jessica will help us consider the global implications of climate change on food security and the importance of climate-conscious diets as a Christian practice.

Maina Talia, Tuvalu Climate Action Network (TuCAN) secretary:

Maina Talia is from the island of Vaitupu, Tuvalu and is currently undertaking Doctoral Studies at the Charles Sturt University in Sydney, focused on the issue of “(tu)akoi (neighbour) and climate change from three trajectories, indigenous wisdom, biblical and geopolitics.”
