To learn from the wisdom of the faith traditions in responding ethically to our ecological environment. To act practically on ecological issues aimed at healing ourselves and our environment. Through this action, to create opportunities for interfaith friendship and learning. To foster ecological and cultural flourishing through diversity.
We began in August 2008 when a meeting was called for all those of diverse faiths interested in starting an ecologically focused interfaith and spiritual network. Out of this meeting a board was formed. We launched our organization with a three part seminar series on Water with high quality presentations by faith leaders, scientists and political and community speakers. We have established communications with other green oriented faith networks locally, nationally and internationally. We are registered as an incorporated organization.
