Climate change disproportionately affects women, especially women in the Global South, women of color, and women in poor communities. In addition, recent research shows that environmental practices are considered emasculating to men. Together in this one-day conference, we explore the various ways that gender intersects with the field of religion and ecology.
The third annual Religion and Ecology Summit will showcase scholars, practitioners, environmentalists, and religious leaders to address the topic of gender at the intersection of religion and ecology. The goal of this conference will be to provide opportunities for networking, learning, building alliances, and sharing research. With recent natural disasters and the re-emergence of the women's movement, we hope this year's conference will become a resource for building solidarity. and sharing strength and strategies of resistance with one another.
The modest conference fee includes a nourishing vegetarian lunch, refreshments, coffee & tea & pastries in the morning, networking, all presentations, and champagne/wine/soda/snacks at our reception.
