Signs of the Times #53: The Connection Between Religion and Ecology

Rabbi Yonatan Neril is the Founder and Executive Director of the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD). The ICSD reveals the connection between religion and ecology and mobilizes faith communities to act. They believe the ecological crisis is about how we live as spiritual beings in a physical reality and that the world's religions need to be fully on board in order to curb the impact of climate change. The scale of the ecological crisis becomes more severe each year, and with over 6 billion people in the world identifying with a religion there's a huge under-leveraged ability for humanity to turn the collective shift. Rabbi Yonatan shares that we can't just think about ourselves, we need to raise our spiritual level of awareness so that we care for other people and for other species.
