Religions for Peace and the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology recognise the critical need to generate energy around spiritually inspired environmental protection and sustainability. Thus, they are partnering to engage youth in the exploration of how religious, spiritual, or ethical approaches to environmental issues can complement approaches from science, policy, law, economics, or technology. The webinar – online – will take place on 2 October 2020.
United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has noted that the coronavirus pandemic is more than a health crisis. It is a human crisis which is attacking societies at their core.
To tackle it, policymakers will need the support of scientists, experts, and society at large, including religious leaders, scholars, and communities.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is partnering with others, within and outside the United Nations, to get people, including adherents of the world’s religions, to revisit our relationship with nature and rebuild a more environmentally responsible world.
