Forum 10th Anniversary Symposium, New York 2008

On Tuesday November 18, 2008, the Forum on Religion and Ecology celebrated its 10th Anniversary in New York at the Yale Club with 175 people in attendance.

An afternoon symposium on world religions and ecology was followed by a premiere of sections of the new film Journey of the Universe. A gala dinner followed at which Gus Speth, Dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, spoke along with Martin Kaplan of the Germeshausen Foundation and the V.
