World Religions Respond to the Environmental Crisis

  • Memorial Union (Alumni Lounge) 301 Orange Mall Tempe, AZ, 85281 United States (map)

Mary Evelyn Tucker is a leader in the emerging field of religion and ecology, having organized 10 conferences at Harvard on the world religions and the environment. Based at Yale, she has written or edited many books on this topic, most recently Ecology and Religion with co-author John Grim.

In this talk, Tucker will discuss the growing moral and religious arguments related to climate change and biodiversity. With publication of the Pope’s encyclical on the environment, this movement is gaining momentum as a field in academia and a force in society.

Light Refreshments will be provided.
