Where: now online

Tony Rinaudo demonstrates pruning.

World Vision’s award-winning Tony Rinaudo, the “Forest Maker,” is the speaker. Tony, who is an ISCAST fellow, will talk about his revolutionary farming practice that has regenerated millions of hectares of forest in the Sahel region of Africa dramatically improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. Tony has a deep Christian faith and his remarkable story is one of hope for our planet: an example of a significant contribution to mitigating climate change that we think all young people should hear. Tony’s work features in the current VCE textbook VCE Geography, Changing the Land. Register here.

 

ISCAST and Schools

Why not book a Christian scientist to come and speak to your students?

ISCAST is offering “a live Christian scientist” to speak or be interviewed in your school (face-to-face or online) around National Science Week this year. We have numerous scientists from around the country who have made themselves available. Before you read on, can I suggest watching this one-minute video which captures the essence of this opportunity?

We live in a context where so many young people seem convinced that they must choose between science and a robust Christian faith. Working with students, you are well aware of the importance of spreading the message that science and faith can be friends. We hope we can help you do that. 

If you decide to book a scientist please fill in this short online form and we will get back to you to talk about the details. Meanwhile, do get back to me if you have any questions. ISCAST can be reached on sarahwilson@iscast.org or on 0421 046 020 although you may have to leave a message. Chris Mulherin, our Executive Director is also happy to take calls on 0431 330 380.
