As environmental issues become more pertinent in today’s society, people of various religions/worldviews feel a calling to respond to these concerns.

With the kind support of the Singapore Environmental Council, a group of individuals from different religions/worldviews came together to organise a workshop for the better understanding of inter-faith teachings on environmental care and preservation.

In March 1995 a conference on Religions, Land and Conservation held in Ohito, Japan, brought together a group of experienced faith based environmentalists of the world’s major faiths. Based on the objectives of the Ohito Declaration that was produced during the conference, we hope the workshop will help to:

Collectively, people of faiths represent the most powerful voice in the world. Hence your voice in this event would add value to the discussions arising. We hope the workshop will allow an opportunity to share common concerns for our future.

We invite you and members of your community/organisation to join us in this event.
