It's Survivability Over Sustainability at upcoming Guest Symposium

The topic of conversation will be sustainability, but guest speakers Mark. A. Burch and Gordon Matties will be looking beyond that when they visit Providence University College for its annual Guest Symposium.

In the aptly titled event, “Beyond Sustainability: Reimagining the Future of Humans and Earth”, Burch and Matties will explain from different perspectives, their views on the sustainability of the earth, and what it means to Christians and their lifestyles. After they each present 90-minute lectures, they will come together in the afternoon to take on the topic together along with the students, faculty, and public in attendance.

This year’s guest symposium aims to inspire action and reflection as Matties and Burch each provide a unique viewpoint on the important topic of preserving the planet we live in, while at the same time complementing each other to help create building blocks for moving forward and creating change. Please join the Providence community as we seek answers, and equip ourselves to nurture the world we live in.
