The Weekly Shot: Our Forest, Our Life, Our Responsibility

Since all religions have their own perspectives related to environmental care, the members of URI Cooperation Circle “Interfaith Peace Building on Natural Resources Management” gathered together representatives from many traditions to speak on the topic.

The gathering took place in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia, on the theme of “Our Forest, Our Life, Our Responsibility.” Among those who spoke on the importance of respecting and preserving nature were representatives from the Muslim community, the Cham ethnic group, the Christian faith, the Buddhist faith, and the Hindu faith.
