Creating dialogue with religions and other disciplines to find comprehensive solutions to environmental problems.
The Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale is the largest international multi-religious project of its kind. With its conferences, publications, and website it is engaged in exploring religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to broaden understanding of the complex nature of current environmental concerns.
The Forum recognizes that religions need to be in dialogue with other disciplines (e.g., science, ethics, economics, education, public policy, gender) in seeking comprehensive solutions to both global and local environmental problems.
Institutional support for the Forum includes: The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale Divinity School, Yale Center for Bioethics, the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation, the Germeshausen Foundation, the Kendeda Sustainability Fund, and the Thomas Berry Foundation.
