United Nations Environment Programme Faith for Earth Initiative

On May 4, 2020, UNEP’s Faith for Earth Initiative and the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology agreed to unite efforts by drawing on UNEP’s extensive knowledge of ecological issues and the Forum’s comprehensive website on the world’s religions.

As Iyad Abumoghli, the UN Principal Coordinator of Faith for Earth Initiative, wrote: “I have had several very constructive and fruitful meetings during the Abrahamic Traditions and Environmental Change Workshop that was held June 23-26 in Rhodes, Greece. Faith for Earth has agreed with the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology to unite efforts and strengthen one knowledge platform building on the vast and extensive work of the Forum over the past two decades.”
