Interfaith climate change meetings resume in Nelson

More interfaith climate change discussions are on the way in Nelson starting Friday.

Last year several churches in Nelson and Castlegar teamed up with the West Kootenay EcoSociety in the wake of the pope’s encyclical on climate change.

EcoSociety executive director Montana Burgess says it was very successful so they’ll do it again

The meetings will be held on the 22nd of each month culminating in an event on earth day next April.
