The Spiritual Ecology Fellowship supports emerging young leaders and innovators who recognize the need to create a future that is not driven by materialism and greed, but rooted in the spiritual values of reverence for nature, interconnectedness, stewardship, compassion, and service. The central component of this 9-month fellowship is the development and implementation of pilot projects that have the potential to be catalysts for change.
