Values, Culture and Spirituality: Ecosystems Restoration
Date: February 10, 2023 @ 10:00-10:45am PT / 1:00-1:45pm ET
Join URI and the Center for Earth Ethics to learn how your faith communities can convene consultation groups to restore local ecosystems. This will be an opportunity to listen and learn from nature and the people who want it to be sustained for generations to come.
The Center for Earth Ethics works to change the dominant value system from one based on short-term material gain–no matter the pollution, depletion and inequity that result–to one based on the long-term health of the whole community of life. We work through education, convening and advocacy to raise public consciousness as well as to shift policy and culture.
We connect individuals and groups through four areas of focus: sustainability and global affairs; environmental justice and civic engagement; Indigenous wisdom, values and rights; and ecology, spirituality and faith. We use our unique convening capacity to tackle pressing issues, not only to speak truth to power but also to amplify the voices of those building a different kind of power, often along the margins.
