The Emerging Field of Religion and Ecology

Religion and Ecology

Visiting professors at the Princeton Environmental Institute, Mary EvelynTucker and John Grim, teach World Religions and Ecology at Yale University.

The growing ecological crisis clearly requires the response of science and technology, economics and policy. These are necessary but not sufficient for solving the complex problems we are facing in envisioning a sustainable future for the Earth community. We will also need the participation of the world's religious communities as we recognize the moral and spiritual implications of the diminishment of the life support systems of the planet. This talk will highlight some of the remarkable work being done within religious communities around the world to bring healing and restoration to people and land. While acknowledging the limitations of religions it will also note the promise for ethical and spiritual transformation regarding ecological attitudes and practices.
