Charles Forbes is a cultural ecologist who employs a mixed-media approach to the study of ecology, spirituality, and religion. He is a trained writer, researcher, and educator focused on advancing environmental teachings and practices that reinforce sustainable visions of change. His educational non-profit, the Deep Water Initiative (DWI), uses film, photography, and other forms of media to foster a dialogue about ecology, climate change, ethics, and a broad range of social issues. His research interests take a comparative cultural and religious approach, devoting particular attention to the role of water – in ritual – for place-based theologies.
Charles is currently serving as the Program Coordinator for the Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion Program.
