Queensland: Nurturing a Spiritual Approach to Climate Change

ecoicd The Centre for Interfaith & Cultural Dialogue in collaboration with the Australian Earth Laws Alliance will be hosting an information session, which features presentations about ecocentrism and ecospirituality from Earth Jurispurdence perspectives, in addition to perspectives from many faith traditions. This event also features open space and small group discussions. This event will take place on Tuesday, 23 June at Griffith University.

The threats posed by climate change are of great concern to many of us. This evening event will be an opportunity to reflect on the impacts of climate change, the feelings this challenge evokes in us and ways that spirituality can support us to respond to these impacts.

Ecospirituality means different things to different people. At its essence it encapsulates a belief about the deep and sacred interconnectedness of all life and life supporting systems on Earth. The aim of this seminar is to bring together people from diverse faith backgrounds, academics, students, environmentalists and interested citizens, to explore the meaning of ecospirituality in Australian society and its role in our daily lives.

This event is part of a quarterly seminar series held in Brisbane called ‘Exploring Ecospirituality’, hosted by the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA), WiseEarth Education, Earth Link and the Griffith University Centre for Interfaith and Cultural Dialogue.


People from different faith communinities, academics, environmentalists, students, researchers and anyone interested in ecospirituality and the role it plays in modern life.
