Video/Audio: Governance

C2G2 encourages a broad societal debate on geoengineering, and strives to include a diversity of views and approaches in its events. This may sometimes lead to interventions being contested. C2G2 does not necessarily endorse or support the opinions stated by its presenters, and welcomes an open discussion of their merits.

Faith Communities and Climate Engineering

Cynthia Scharf speaks about the role that faith communities can play in education and advocacy about geoengineering governance. This video was originally produced for GreenFaith’s COP24 event entitled “Playing God? Multi-Faith Responses to the Prospect of Climate Engineering.”
