Why This is Needed
As Japan’s nuclear energy crisis, the BP oil spill, and global climate change increasingly show, humanity faces significant challenges with regard to living sustainably on the planet. All three issues point to both crises and opportunities. They challenge us all to live better and walk more wisely and responsibly on the Earth.
Through education and action-oriented projects, ICSD encourages the cooperation and training of religious leaders, teachers, and communities on ecological issues and advocacy.
