“Defend the Sacred” Conference: Tune Into the Livestream!

    Are you interested in our “Defend the Sacred” conference, August 16–19, but can’t make it to Tamera? Tune in via livestream and follow the main events online in real time. We’ll be transmitting all 4 of the conference’s keynote panels, one each day, in which leading activists from around the world will discuss core issues of our time: climate crisis, system change, ecological and social regeneration, Indigenous wisdom, a post-materialistic worldview and more. You can join for free and we’re grateful for donations to help us cover the costs of the event.
