Revivers of Indigenous Spirituality and Ecosystems (The RISE Circle) aims to support fellow indigenous and pagan spiritual leaders in reviving and empowering earth-based wisdom traditions to survive to serve future generations. This Cooperation Circle (CC) looks forward to rediscover, reapply and integrate the sacred ecosystems knowledge into the world’s on-going mission to reverse climate change. This CC includes members of 16 faiths from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas, as well as members from Indigenous and earth-based Pagan spiritual paths worldwide. The first central RISE Circle office was in New York. Actions of this CC include: creating and developing sustainable RISE healing centers; researching and reviving ecosystems; creating a small number of RISE Circle central offices and virtual programs staffed by Indigenous and Pagan interfaith directors and facilitators; creating one or more scientific and academic research teams on Indigenous ecosystem’s revival; holding periodic reporting; planning conferences organized by central offices and research teams, in which local and central researchers meet, physically or virtually, to share and integrate their knowledge into climate change reduction action plans; and planning future research cycles. One of their highlights was their presentation of the RISE project at the 2015 Parliament of World Religions, where it was favorably received, and attracted new members.
