Online Interfaith Course on Climate Change


The Wilmette Institute will offer an 8 week online course on Climate Change starting April 15, 2017.

The course covers the basic science of climate change and provides an understanding of how climate disruption impacts us today and will continue to affect us in the future. Course participants will explore ethical questions related to climate change and address them in the context of the spiritual teachings of the world’s religions, especially those of the Baha’i Faith.

The course helps participants to consider changes in lifestyle and community action for environmental and social responsibility. It shows how to rise above partisan politics and to use both science and religion for the well-being of humankind. There are numerous optional resources for those who want to go more deeply into the issues. The course is international - the faculty are from Geneva (Switzerland), Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina), and Rhode Island (USA). People of all religious background are welcome to participate.
