Online Interfaith Course on Climate Change


The Wilmette Institute will offer an 8-week online course on climate change, from September 20 to November 15, 2014.

The objectives of the course are

• to help participants become literate in the basic science of climate change and to acquire an understanding of how it impacts people today and in the future,

• to explore ethical questions related to climate change and to address them within the context of the spiritual teachings of the world’s religions, especially of the Baha’i Faith,

• to enable participants to make enlightened decisions for their lives that are consistent with their own spiritual and ethical values.

For those interested in a more thorough study of climate change or who are interested in specific aspects of it, the course offers numerous optional resources.

The Wilmette Institute is an online Baha’i Learning Center. Its courses are open to members of all religions.
