2023 Nature of Place Symposium: Faith and the Environment

8-23-2023 at 8:30 am 8-24-2023 at 5:00 pm


The way people interact with nature and relate to the wild world is often rooted in the spiritual ideas and beliefs that we were raised with. The symposium invites us all to explore the spectrum of beliefs about nature held by our neighbors and community members so we can understand one another and discover the hidden points where our views intersect. By examining the intertwined histories of belief, nature and humanity, we seek to learn from the past and present to cultivate climate action for the future.

The first day of the symposium will be virtual and feature academic insights on the relationship between spiritual beliefs and environmental action, and the second day can be attended either in-person or virtually and will feature a variety of practicing perspectives on building creative bridges towards climate action.
