Ecological Conversion and Solidarity

NPR: Living on Earth
April 23, 2021

As the episode notes, science and policy are vital in building a more sustainable world, but they often don’t convey the values we need in order to engage people to do so. With spiritual guides who carry diverse traditions and teachings, host Steve Curwood surveys the values that can guide us along this path towards ecological harmony. In the episode Curwood interviews Mary Evelyn Tucker, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Joe Bruchac, Rabbi Yonatan Neril, Christiana Peppard, Father Albert Fritsch, Fazlun Khalid, Joe Bruchac, and Mamphele Ramphele. Indigenous stories, holy scriptures, East Asian cosmologies, papal encyclicals and divine revelation all shed light on our duties and relationship to each other and to our common home.
