Event description: 

January 20, 2022

5:00 pm EST

Please join the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS) for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Science, Religion, and  Society. On January 20, 2022, IRAS will host a live session, featuring Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker and Dr. John Grim, Co-Directors of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology (New Haven).

Respondents: Robert Schaible and Sally Bowden-Schaible, founder of the Buddhist Alliance for Non-Violence and Human Rights in Israel-Palestine

Presentation Overview:

The growing ecological crisis clearly requires the response of science and technology, economics  and policy. These are necessary but not sufficient for solving the complex problems we are facing  in envisioning a sustainable future for the Earth community. We will also need the participation of the world’s religious communities as we recognize the moral and spiritual implications of the  diminishing life support systems of the planet. This talk will highlight some of the remarkable work being done within religious communities around the world to bring healing and restoration to  people and land. While acknowledging the limitations of religions it will also note the promise for  ethical and spiritual transformation regarding ecological attitudes and practices. This will be  explored further in the new Yale/Coursera online classes are designed for a general audience.
