With its conferences, publications, website, and newsletter, The Forum on Religion and Ecology is engaged in exploring religious worldviews, texts, ethics, and practices in order to broaden understanding of the complex nature of current environmental concerns. The Forum was created to assist environmental programs and movements with moral reflection that is culturally aware, academically grounded, and socially transformative. It welcomes broad perspectives and dialogues from the religious and spiritual traditions of the world in relation to contemporary environmental challenges, and is a platform for the increasing international interconnections between religion and ecology. This project is fiscally sponsored by Yale University.
“Issues of equity and justice and a peaceful world and a coherent culture—
they’ve got to be rewoven, but they can’t be rewoven
without a profound spiritual base
and that spiritual base has to be fundamentally in the earth.”
—Mary Evelyn Tucker
