United Church Marks Earth Day Nationwide—Virtually

18 April 2012

Toronto: In keeping with her “care of creation” theme as Moderator of The United Church of Canada, Mardi Tindal wanted to mark Earth Day 2012 in a way that would draw people together—virtually.

And so, on Sunday, April 22, at 3:00 p.m. (EDT), Tindal will host a one-hour live webcast that celebrates efforts to heal soul, community, and creation.

“I wanted this event to be a low-carbon national gathering, and that is what it will be,” says Tindal.

Joining her as co-host will be former Member of Parliament the Hon. David MacDonald, a United Church minister and long-time advocate on environmental issues. Other guests will join the discussion via Skype. The webcast will also be interactive, inviting viewers to participate in the conversation via Facebook and Twitter (hashtag #modearth).

To watch the webcast, go to Livestream .
