Ecology, Economy and Ethics: Mobilizing for a Just Transition

Event description: 

September 16, 2015

Union Theological Seminary
3041 Broadway
New York, NY, USA

About one year after the Religions for the Earth conference brought more than 200 world religious leaders to New York during the UN Climate Summit, leaders of religious and spiritual traditions will reconvene for a one-day summit on where we are now. This conference, almost exactly between the release of the papal encyclical on the environment and the COP21 climate change summit, will cover topics from divestment to energy ethics to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and with a special session on linking locally-rooted struggles to our broader climate movement.

If you cannot join us in person, you are welcome to join us online. 

Event Partners:
Center for Earth Ethics
The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology
Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School
Forum 21 Institute

Mary Evelyn Tucker will participate in the session on “Religions for the Earth: The Road to Paris.”
