The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology released a series of free online courses that cover world religions and their relationship with ecology in an effort to impact the way people consider environmental issues.
The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology launched a series of massive open online courses, or MOOCs, this month on the Coursera platform that explore world religions and their diverse ecological perspectives.
The courses represent the culmination of a years-long project by John Grim and Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology who are also both senior lecturers and research scholars at the Yale Divinity School and the Yale School of the Environment. These MOOCs have been made free for audit and academically accessible to engage individuals of diverse backgrounds and interests.
