Religions for the Earth

Religions for the Earth convened more than 200 spiritual and religious leaders during Climate Week 2014 in NYC to examine the role of faith in addressing the climate crisis. This convergence exploring the moral dimensions of stewardship of the earth followed the historic People’s Climate March and culminated in “Religions for the Earth: A Multifaith Celebration” at Saint John the Divine. This pinnacle moment, birthed the Center for Earth Ethics.

Five years later our programs have expanded to grassroots mobilizations, building relationships with those caring for the earth, engaging in consultation with policy forming bodies, developing the new economic paradigm, and sharing the wisdom of the original caretakers of the earth in our signature annual event – Ministry in the Time of Climate Change.

Enjoy the gallery of photos and videos we’ve assembled here and many thanks for joining us on this journey.  We are excited for all that is still to come.
