Religions for Peace (RfP) Indonesia, in collaboration with Gita Santih Nusantara (GSN), will hold three series of webinars (August, October, December), with the theme : “Environmental Conservation for Peace”. Sub-theme : “Actualization of Religious Life in Developing a Caring Culture Environment in Society for Peace.” The first iteration will take place on Saturday, 13 June, 2022.
For the next five years (2021-2025), the Asia Conference of Religions for Peace (ACRP), of which Religions for Peace Indonesia is one of the Chapters among the 23 existing member countries, has declared Climate Change is one of our major issues.
We do realize, climate change is no longer a situation that will happen in the future but has already happened, is happening, and will happen everywhere in the world, including in the Asia-Pacific region and Indonesia, if there is no effort to prevent and overcome it.
We have seen unpredictable seasonal changes, flash floods, earthquakes everywhere, increased deforestation or transformation of forests into oil palm plantations, and pollution of rivers and seas with various waste, including plastic which people still use regardless of its characteristic to destroy nature. All of them impact nature and, in turn, the health of human life and other creatures, which will result in the decline of Earth and all living things.
To better understand the situation and build awareness on moving and taking real action in each family, group, community, Religions for Peace (RfP) Indonesia, in collaboration with Gita Santih Nusantara (GSN), will hold three series of webinars (August, October, December), with the theme : “Environmental Conservation for Peace”. Sub-theme : “Actualization of Religious Life in Developing a Caring Culture Environment in Society for Peace.”
