Author Katharine Wilkinson, C’05, will share the story of how evangelicals are cultivating a middle ground on climate change and discuss insights from her research. Wilkinson’s book, Between God & Green, was published last year.

The Boston Globe has called Between God & Green "a vitally important, even subversive, story." Compelled to action by religious belief, climate care leaders challenge conventional thought and advocacy on environmental issues, breaking traditional boundaries of the evangelical agenda, partisan politics, and established alliances and hostilities. From Capitol Hill to church pews, the burgeoning movement demonstrates real power to unlock solutions by bridging God and green.

Dr. Katharine Wilkinson is the author of Between God & Green and a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, specializing in organizational culture and behavior change. A Rhodes Scholar and Udall Scholar, Wilkinson holds a doctorate in environmental studies from Oxford and a BA in religion from Sewanee. Her experience in sustainability includes work for the Natural Resources Defense Council, consulting on strategic communications and stakeholder engagement, teaching environmental social science at Oxford, and extensive public speaking. She is a homegrown Atlantan, passionate equestrian, and devotee of the Cumberland Plateau.

Wilkinson’s talk is sponsored by the Center for Religion and Environment, EarthKeepers and the Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability.
