Interfaith Dialogue of Believers for our Common Home

201 (Laudato SI). The majority of people living on our planet profess to be believers. This should spur religions to dialogue among themselves for the sake of protecting nature, defending the poor, and building networks of respect and fraternity. Dialogue among the various sciences is likewise needed, since each can tend to become enclosed in its own language, while specialization leads to a certain isolation and the absolutization of its own field of knowledge. This prevents us from confronting environmental problems effectively. An open and respectful dialogue is also needed between the various ecological movements, among which ideological conflicts are not infrequently encountered. The gravity of the ecological crisis demands that we all look to the common good, embarking on a path of dialogue which demands patience, self-discipline and generosity, always keeping in mind that “realities are greater than ideas”.

GreenFaith inspires, educates, organizes, and mobilizes people of diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds globally for environmental action. Our work is based on beliefs shared by the world’s religious and spiritual traditions.

GreenFaith is an international, interfaith environmental NGO — one of the oldest organizations of its kind in the world. We have a long history of working with diverse religious and spiritual communities, educating about the moral and sacred basis for protecting the environment, helping these communities green their operations, and mobilizing passionate people for environmental advocacy and campaigns. Since 1992, we have worked with spiritual and religious communities representing diverse traditions and cultures around the world.

The Forum on Religion and Ecology, Yale

 

"The Forum on Religion and Ecology is the largest international multireligious project of its kind. With its conferences, publications, and website it is engaged in exploring religious worldviews, texts, ethics, and practices 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, economics, education, public policy) in seeking comprehensive solutions to both global and local environmental problems. Read the Overview for the Forum." ( Source http://fore.yale.edu/about-us/)"

The Second European Ecumenical Assembly will take place in Graz (Austria) from 23 to 29 June 1997. bringing together thousands of Christians from all Churches from all over Europe to look at the many challenges facing our societies and to advocate practical measures for reconciliation, justice and solidarity. The Council of Europe, an organisation which since its foundation has worked towards the same goals - human rights, respect for minorities, tolerance, in short for a better quality of life - has decided to play an active part in this important initiative, particularly in the field of the environment. Surprising though it may seem. Churches, all Churches, and all religions are taking an increasingly active interest in their responsibility for the Creation, calling upon their followers
