Religions for the Earth is designed to call out the moral imperative to care for our natural world and bridge social justice issues to environmental activism. Gathering on the weekend before the United Nations Climate Summit, conference participants will come together across diverse traditions to provide leadership for the earth in a historic and critical moment. By helping to catalyze action in support of a just and effective international climate treaty, religious and spiritual leaders can help effect a shift in values towards an ecologically and ethically conscious global community.
At the conference, faith leaders will be connected with other faith leaders within and across traditions, as well as with climate organizers and activists in other sectors in order to create a blueprint for action that will drive change at the local, national and global levels.
Conference participants will join workshops designed to explore narrative and ritual as tools for organizing, share innovative approaches to climate activism within traditions, strengthen and expand connections between faith leaders and activist organizations, and mobilize participation in a global, multifaith network that will support ongoing activism and commitment to the cause. A contingent from the conference will also participate in the People's Climate March on Sunday, September 21.
Please note that conference registration is by invitation-only.
