Faith and Ecology: What do they have to do with each other? Anne Lanyon is an administrator of the Faith Ecology Network (FEN) which is an Australian hub for strengthening an interfaith dialogue between science and religion. We encourage action between different faith communities regarding ecological insights through holding events, producing publications and sharing information through our networks and on social media. The network includes people from Aboriginal, Anglican, Bahá’í, Buddhist, Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Hindu, Islamic, Quaker, and Uniting Church faith traditions. In the midst of divisiveness, appreciation of religious insights into ecological matters is something we can and do work on together – now more than ever. Come and learn a little of why we do this, what we have done, and what we hope to do in the future. http://www.faithecology.net.au/
