Sobre o curso

At first glance the fields of religion and ecology may seem and unlikely pairing, but a deeper consideration reveals the two have a great deal to contribute to one another and are indeed inextricably linked. Religions recognize the unity and interdependence of humans with nature. Ecological sciences affirm this deep interconnection with the natural world. This partnership can inspire work for the wellbeing of the Earth community
 There is a need for broader literacy and deeper knowledge of the world’s religions and their ecological contributions. This specialization, starting with this course, contributes such a perspective. Each course celebrates the vitality of religiously-informed action for the Earth and recognizes the longstanding contributions of Indigenous peoples in offering visions and practices for ecological flourishing. This course is part one of the "Religions and Ecology: Restoring the Earth Community" series of classes that focuses on the ecological dimensions of religious traditions throughout the world. The course you are about to begin is designed as a gateway to the other classes. It describes the nature of religion as well as the emergence of the field of ecology. In addition, it highlights concerns for forestry issues, the climate emergency, global ethics, and environmental justice. This course is for lifelong learners curious to know more about world religions and ecology, environmental professionals eager to deepen the discourse of environmental protection and conservation, those working with non-profit organizations and NGOs on issues of ecological justice, and religion leaders and laity who what to know how they can contribute to interreligious dialogue on environmental projects....

I​ appreciate how up to date the resources and articles were for this course. There were powerful links to unfolding ecological moments in the news that happened during the course. I also appreciated the strong connection that climate justice is social justice. The end of the course in particular was attentive to the way race, gender, and class were folded into the dynamics of ecological impact on the climate. Rather than bifurcating the interests of peoples and place, they presented an integrated view of interdependence and belonging that resisted many of the double binds and false choices of our age. Thank you for the sweeping historical foundation to continue on with the other courses. I can't wait!

Thank you very much for a well-thought out and well-given course which intersects Religion and Ecology. I been enriched by it. I hope to integrate this knowledge into my own way of thinking and doing and, as a teacher, I hope to share this experience to my students as well.

The professors, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim are clearly experts on the subject. They have been generous in sharing their lifelong study and journey to us.

The online program (content, assessments, resources) is well-crafted. I can say that the learning and teaching objectives were met.

I congratulate Yale University and Coursera for making online education an enriching reality.

Speaking from Brazil, I'm really thankful for having this course. Your job was amazing, and being a student of Social Sciences I hope that one day I could watch a class of you presencially. And more important, I hope one day this fight of ours became the reality of ours. God bless you and thank you so much!

A great introduction to how religion and spirituality can play a role in Ecology. A must take course for anyone who wants to understand this intricate relationship and wants to be an Earth Guardian themselves.
