Faith and the Environment
Through interpretations of religious texts and traditions, religious actors have extensive resources to encourage sustainable development and environmental movements. With contemporary emphasis on structural development and business growth, the environment is rapidly deteriorating due to processes such as industrialization in developing countries, climate change and pollution, and the exploitation of natural resources. As key participants in sacred spaces, community development, and advocacy practices, religious congregations can foster significant change in addressing environmental challenges. The resources on this page explore the impact of religion on environmental and sustainable practices by highlighting organizations, programs, textual interpretations, events, publications, and other research.
