The Western Kentucky University Office of International Programs and Potter College of Arts and Letters are hosting the third Interfaith Dialogue on Earth Care from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The event brings different faiths together to fellowship while discussing different environmental topics such as local and global initiatives, climate change, scientific perspective on environmental justice, world religion and literacy on earth care and other topics.

Friday night activities are in WKU's Mass Media Technology Hall and will consist of a screening of the movie "Dirt" followed by a panel discussion and the introduction of the WKU Community Religious Literacy Project.

Saturday's agenda will take place at Christ Episcopal Church with registration starting at 7:30 a.m. The day will include roundtable discussions, keynote speeches from pastors and professors from Bowling Green and surrounding areas and a potluck lunch.

WKU Office of Sustainability Coordinator Christian Ryan will preside over one of the discussions. She said the event is really positive, and she wants to continue to support it and share the student perspective.

"I think it encourages discussion that otherwise may not be happening," Ryan said. "I work a lot with college students on a variety of sustainability projects. I have an understanding of what this younger generation cares about and what they're working on." 

— Early registration is recommended. For more information or a registration form, contact Bella Mukonyora by emailing or calling 270-745-5754.
