Livestream and Simultaneous Translations into Spanish

Spiritual ecology is a 40-year old academic field in religious studies recognizing that there is a spiritual facet to all issues related to conservationenvironmentalism, and actions that support the flourishing of the planet. This symposium will explore through interfaith dialogue, humanity’s underlying attitudes and beliefs that have led to the depletion of species, global warming, and over-consumption. Proponents of Spiritual Ecology assert a need for contemporary conservation work to include spiritual perspectives and for contemporary religion and spirituality to include awareness of and engagement in ecological issues. The evening symposium panel will consist of four speakers who represent Hindu/Vedantic, Islamic, Catholic, and indigenous perspectives on the subject.
