Rome and Assisi Conference on Spirituality and Sustainability

 

This second consecutive Rome and Assisi Conference on Spirituality and Sustainability was Co-Convened by Forum 21 and St. Thomas University of Florida. The conference focused on: 1) the ecological convergence of diverse spiritual and religious traditions; 2) the sensibilities and practices of ecological spiritualities; 3) transformative movements such as the Earth Charter and the United Nations Agenda 203 on Sustainable Development; and 4) paradigm shifts in key institutions (e.g. science, law, and education). We also invited and supported young ecological leaders to contribute to the conference and this proved to be very effective. This year's group was much smaller than last year with 35 participants. The group also consisted of a larger variety of  participants, with less academics, business people and lawyers, artists and experts in sports and consciousness.
