Temple of Understanding celebrating our 60th Anniversary in 2020
ECO JUSTICE FOR ALL interview series is an ongoing program produced by the Temple of Understanding, incorporating our outreach in the area of environmental awareness and advocacy.
We present a diverse range of perspectives, from scientific to spiritual views, on the climate emergency and offer a variety of solutions that we can all do easily and effectively in our everyday lives.
World religious and spiritual visionaries, Indigenous leaders, scientists and social scientists, environmental activists, artists, musicians and writers, youth and elders, local and global people on the street, all come together to address the urgency of the climate crisis through this ongoing interview series. We promote the understanding and wisdom of these ChangeMakers, their insights into the state of our planet and their offerings of diverse strategies for inspired action.
Here you will find short 3 minute clips by speakers from our annual conference dedicated to the discussion of the global climate emergency, Forum2020 & Forum2021, as well as people dedicated to the health and well being of our planet and all creation.
We are an educational NGO advocating for interfaith values in the secular setting of the United Nations in support of peace, justice, human rights, food sovereignty and environmental sustainability.
