Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Environment, in a first of its kind partnership with the Multifaith Centre, have launched an Ecological Chaplaincy Pilot Project to explore the provision of pastoral and spiritual care to members of the SFU community experiencing anxiety and grief related to the climate and extinction crises.

They welcome Jason Brown as SFU’s first ecological chaplain to lead the project. Brown is already a valued member of the SFU community.
