As part of the consultation on the Post-2015 agenda, the United Nations invited on-line comments on three themes related to Environmental Sustainability: Equality; Human Rights, Peace and Security; and Poverty. The IEF submitted comments on each of these themes, adapted from some of the statements it prepared for Rio+20. See http://www.worldwewant2015.org/sustainability2015.

Repeat of Climate Change course

Submitted by admin on 31. January 2013 - 0:08

The Wilmette Institute on-line learning course on "Scientific and Spiritual Dimensions of Climate Change" which started 1 February for seven weeks is oversubscribed, with more than 50 participants. The Wilmette Institute has therefore decided to offer a repeat of the course from 5 May to 23 June 2013. The course was developed by Christine Muller and other faculty are Carole Flood, Karryn Olson-Ramanujan, and Arthur Dahl, all IEF members. It is based on the similar inter-faith course for local group use available on the IEF web site (http://iefworld.org/ssdcc0.html).
