Religion & Ecology Summit
We cordially invite you to the second annual Religion and Ecology Summit, hosted by the Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion (ESR) graduate program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). This free one-day conference features dialogue between leaders of environmental organizations and practitioners, faculty, and students of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Theology.
Together, these scholar-practitioners will explore the transformational possibilities of incorporating ecological concerns into religious education and the integration of spiritual perspectives into environmental protection and activism. We look forward to the conference becoming a catalyst for scholarly growth for those involved in the field of Religion and Ecology, and professional development for those students and professionals in the Bay Area.
Events of the day include opening and closing keynotes by mathematical cosmologist (and ESR faculty member) Brian Thomas Swimme and Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale co-founder Mary Evelyn Tucker, as well as two panels: 1) Equity, Justice, & Climate Change and 2) Listening to the Land: Nonhuman Voices in the Ecozoic Era.
Free and open to the public!
