Religious organizations and people of ethical conviction have an important role to play in creating a sustainable and equitable future.
Through our Eco-Ministry program, CEE offers classes, trainings, and workshops that explore the moral and spiritual dimensions of the climate crisis. We also connect faith leaders within and across traditions to work on ecological issues, build bridges between theological inquiry and the realms of policy, science and activism, and honor and uplift those who do the work of reconnecting people to nature.
