Farm Forward will hold the “David Clough Virtual Visit,” a series of interactive webinar sessions where theologian David Clough will meet with students and other participants around the world to discuss animal ethics, the place of animals within Christianity, and related topics from his two-volume work On Animals.
The Summit is a gathering of 350 leaders committed to changing the world through faith and justice. This diverse gathering creates an opportunity for building relationships and cross-sector collaboration. Through inspirational main-stage conversations, small group forums, and shared meals, The Summit provides a space for leaders to find connection to their peers and hope for the future.

This conference, “On Food and Faith: Ministry in the Time of Climate Change,” will teach faith leaders how our current food system is contributing to the climate crisis, explore the impact climate change is having on farming and food security, and help empower attendees to take action on these issues in a way that aligns with their deepest values.
The training is hosted by the Center for Earth Ethics, MTSO, The Climate Reality Project, and the Initiative for Food and AgriCultural Transformation at Ohio State University. It will take place at MTSO May 30-June 1.

Talk and Q&A: Christians, Farmed Animals and Food for Humans: Can Human and Nonhuman Animals Flourish?
Join CreatureKind Project Editor Margaret B. Adam to explore:
What's life like for industrially farmed animals? And for the people who work in farms and slaughterhouses? Find out why Christians should care and what they can do about it. Learn about CreatureKind and how it helps Christians connect their beliefs with their relationship to farmed animals. Discuss the complications of changing eating habits and the challenges of animal advocacy in relation to other pressing concerns. Consider CreatureKind projects you can try in your own (Christian or non-Christian) organisations and communities, like #DefaultVeg, Institutional Food Policies, and a six-week small group course.
