#GenerationRestoration

Intro

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration runs from 2021 through 2030 – the timeline scientists have identified as the last chance to prevent catastrophic climate change.

To support the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the Center for Earth Ethics is hosting the Values, Culture, and Spirituality Series to spotlight restoration projects around the world. These projects are led by individuals and organizations grounded in a sense of place, culture, and spirituality. We believe this approach is crucial for mobilizing action. The more we relate to nature through the lens of values, culture and spirituality, the deeper and more sustained our actions will be.

Join us for these and other Upcoming Events in this Consultation Series

Values, Culture and Spirituality: A Consultation on Air, St. James Parish

An ecological society will require local, national, and international action to challenge economic paradigms that emphasize short-term profit over planetary health and thriving communities. This includes the need for regenerative solutions and commitments to protecting species and their habitats including the healthy soil, water and air that sustain them. We need Indigenous wisdom and women’s front line voices to inform our decision making. Join us for this opening dialogue on Values, Culture and Spirituality: A Consultation on Air.
