Bishop Geoff Davies supports the iStart2 initiative because we need to touch people through art and use every channel to spread the message. Bishop Davies combines faith and environmental activism in a dynamic package.
The Green Bishop Starts 2
He 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.
