Bangladesh is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to the effects of climate change. Religious beliefs and leadership play important roles in places and communities like Bangladesh that are marked by frequent disasters and environmental disruptions, leading to displacement and social marginalization. However, much of the literature and dialogue surrounding climate change in Bangladesh leaves out the crucial faith component.

World Faiths Development Dialogue’s (WFDD) recently produced documentary film, No Ark, delves into the interconnected realms of faith and the environment, offering a profound exploration of the human experience in the face of environmental challenges. As rising tides and shifting landscapes demand our attention, No Ark brings forth a unique narrative that intertwines the threads of belief, resilience, and the urgent need for environmental action. 

WFDD shared the documentary film with the Georgetown community, focusing on key narratives from the film. A panel discussion and audience Q & A followed the screening and refreshments were served. Berkley Center Research Fellow Sudipta Roy introduced the film.

This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and Earth Commons at Georgetown University and the World Faiths Development Dialogue.
