Switch to Green Conference and Expo – 11&12 September

The Switch to Green Conference and Expo provides an opportunity for students and the wider community to gain a greater understanding of the environmental impact of our lifestyle and how we can switch to a greener, more sustainable way of life. As part of an initiative organised by the *ANU Climate Change Institute*, SEE-Change, ACT Government and various other councils and organisations in Canberra, Switch to Green is a great opportunity to track and consider Canberra's
movement towards a green and sustainable future.

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
