Creating dialogue with religions and other disciplines to find comprehensive solutions to environmental problems.

The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology is an international multireligious project contributing to a new academic field and an engaged moral force of religious environmentalism. With its conferences, publications, monthly newsletter, and website, it explores religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to contribute to environmental solutions along with science, policy, law, economics, and appropriate technology.

The Forum was founded in 1998 by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim and has been based at Yale University since 2006. Please explore the About Us section for more information on the Mission, History, and Projects of the Forum.

Others have been critical to leading this work early on, especially the National Religious Partnership on the EnvironmentGreen FaithInterfaith Power and Light, Earth Ministry, Faith in Place, and Blessed Tomorrow in the United States. In Britain, the Alliance of Religion and Conservation (ARC) has done tireless work led by Martin Palmer with the support of Prince Philip. The European Forum for the Study of Religion and the Environment has made important contributions to advance scholarly research through conferences and publications.
