Interfaith Climate and Energy Conference

The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD) and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, held the Interfaith Climate and Energy Conference at the Mishkenot Sha’ananim Conference Center in Jerusalem on March 19th, 2012. The Conference featured world and Holy Land-based religious leaders speaking out on the ethical imperative and religious basis for action on climate change and use of renewable energy. The goal of the Conference was to generate tractable change regarding environmental sustainability within faith-based communities in the Holy Land and worldwide. The two main levers for change are religious leaders and emerging religious teachers, who represent under-tapped potential environmental change agents.
