The Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion (ESR) graduate program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) hosted the second annual Religion and Ecology Summit, a one-day conference which invited leaders of environmental organizations into dialogue with practitioners, faculty, and students of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Theology. This free one-day conference featured dialogue between leaders of environmental organizations and practictioners, faculty, and students of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Theology. Together, these scholar-practitioners explored the transformational possibilities of incorporating ecological concerns into religious education and the integration of spiritual perspectives into environmental protection and activism. The conference became a catalyst for scholarly growth for those involved in the field of Religion and Ecology, and professional development for those students and professionals in the Bay Area.
