Hindu Earth Ethics, a one-day inter-collegiate conference at Yale University will address Hinduism and Ecology. Planning partners include The Bhumi Project, a Hindu environmental organization in the UK, Hindu American Foundation, The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology and the Office of Religious Life at Princeton.

During this time of climate crisis, community-led environmental activism is a necessary and powerful force, especially activism rooted in faith traditions. Hindu environmental ethics and activism is being shaped by young people and community leaders as much as it is by the academy. Today, Hindu-Americans from all walks of life are uniting, reclaiming identities, shaping powerful activism, and applying dharmic principles to critical issues facing us all.

This conference will feature students, activists, and scholars who are powerful voices in the field sharing how Hindu traditions shape their environmental thought, followed by a conversation on the practice of Hindu environmental activism here in North America.
