Sarah Beley

Raised Ukrainian Orthodox in Edmonton Alberta, Sarah comes to Fossil Free Faith with a love and passion for diversity and dialogue.  She is a recent graduate of Simon Fraser University with a BA in Political Science and Dialogue Communications, an alumni of the Semester in Dialogue, and a Radius Fellow. Her pivotal moment of environmental awareness came from her year living and working in Wenzhou, China, where Sarah experienced firsthand the devastating effects of environmental degradation.

In the past Sarah struggled with the compartmentalization of many issues she could see as interrelated and believes interfaith and intercultural dialogue to be part of the solution. Sarah sees Fossil Free Faith as a way to deepen the conversation on climate change and a more inclusive tool to engage communities not typically being involved in such important conversations.

Sarah’s main tenet in life is simply “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Sarah is the human of the world’s most awesome dog- Salvador Doggie.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
