KATHLEEN DEIGNAN, CND
INSTITUTE FOR EARTH AND SPIRIT AT IONA
 

SALUTES OUR ESTEEMED FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF

THE YALE FORUM ON RELIGION AND ECOLOGY

AS THEY ENTER INTO 
A NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH
THE UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMME'S 

 
FAITH FOR EARTH INITIATIVE

Founded in 1998 by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology is an international multireligious project contributing to a new academic field and an engaged moral force of religious environmentalism. With its conferences, publications, monthly newsletter, and website, it explores religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to contribute to environmental solutions along with science, policy, law, economics, and appropriate technology.

The Institute for Earth and Spirit celebrates this new alliance between FORE and UNEP and the energies it will foster for "The Great Work" of our time: to heal and restore our Common Home.

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) launched the Faith for Earth Initiative in November 2017. The goal of Faith for Earth is to strategically engage with faith-based organizations and partner with them to collectively achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and fulfill the objectives of the 2030 Agenda
Thomas Berry Forum for Ecological Dialogue is honored to partner with our colleagues Drs. Grimm and Tucker and acknowledge the enormous contribution they have made to the academic life of the students of Iona.  See their initiative: The Journey of the Universe 

Faith for Earth has three main goals: to inspire and empower faith organizations and their leaders to advocate for protecting the environment, to green faith-based organizations’ investments and assets to support the implementation of SDGs, and to provide them with knowledge and networks to enable their leaders to effectively communicate with decision-makers and the public. 
We encourage you to explore the new website, and we hope you will find it beneficial for your own vital efforts. Let us continue to work together to create a flourishing Earth Community.      https://fore.yale.edu/
