2019-2020 Religion and Nature Speaker Series 


The Religion and Nature Speaker Series is a collaboration between Loyola University's Department of Theology and the Institute of Environmental Sustainability. The series features six speakers (three per semester) who will detail certain practices and ideas within their respective religious communities (Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Lakota, Hinduism) that creatively respond to today's ecological crisis and that both draw from and enrich the scientific wisdom needed to heal the Earth.
