National Religious Partnership for the Environment

Accessed April 19, 2017.

Faith communities have distinct approaches to environmental concerns - approaches which arise from their unique traditions. At the same time, major traditions hold certain core values in common, such as God’s love for creation and humanity’s responsibility for its care. The aim of the National Religious Partnership for the Environment is to express a united commitment to “seek justice and healing for the whole community of life”. The website offers a kind of one-stop shop for resources from five religious traditions: Jewish, Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, Mainline and Evangelical Christian. Features include creation care statements, theological and scriptural foundations for creation care, success stories from across the traditions, and links to such leading organizations as the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, and the Evangelical Environmental Network. Anyone seeking information and resources from the breadth of American religious traditions will find a treasure trove at this site.
