“God is Green” … Bishop Geoff Davies
Archbishop Tutu calls him the Apostle of the Environment. South Africa’s very own “Green” Bishop Geoff Davies is keen to encourage renewable energy and believes we should share the resources of this world.
He condemns usury, inequality and fracking and has a firm belief that we are all part of nature and that “we must care for all of life.”
Bishop Davies is the Founder and executive director of the South African Faith Communities Environment Institute (SAFCEI).
A man who has willingly adopted the role of chief challenger and admonisher of those who do not acknowledge the fragility of our planet.
He is resolute in his belief that faith communities – be they Christian, Jewish, Moslem, Baha’i or Buddhist – have a major role to play in saving the environment.
Bishop Davies received one of the country’s highest environmental honours, the Nick Steele Memorial Award as the SAB Environmentalist of the Year for his work in 2011.
The meeting will take place at 10 Da Gama Road at 6 pm tonight.
