Value, Culture, and Spirituality: Ecosystem Restoration Conversation Guide

4 April 2024

URI and the Center for Earth Ethics, are collaborating on a series of grassroots dialogues in communities around the world most affected by the impacts of climate change and environmental devastation.

This pioneering initiative not only will address the implementation gap in restoration efforts but also will facilitate community engagement and participation in the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

By bridging the divide between community needs and available support, this initiative seeks to accelerate restoration efforts and amplify their impact on a global scale.

The dialogues will follow a structure developed by CEE and URI, drawing from CEE’s Ecosystem Restoration Conversation Guide and URI’s Cooperation Circles. The Conversation Guide outlines a four-step process for facilitating community consultations, while URI’s Cooperation Circles provide a structure for self-organizing groups from diverse faith traditions and worldviews to engage in meaningful dialogue and collective action toward creating cultures of peace, justice, and healing.
