Everyday Religion and Sustainable Environments in the Himalaya Conference (March 7-8, 2013)

himalaya Everyday Religion and Sustainable Environments in the Himalaya

Everyday Religion and Sustainable Environments in the Himalaya is a multi-year initiative that endeavors to uncover new dimensions to the current discourse on global environmental policy. The project aims to create an enabling environment for knowledge-sharing and production on the complex role of religion with particular emphasis on sustainable environmental issues. Given the diversity of traditions and practices within the region, the Himalayas serve as an ideal laboratory and a focal point for the current discussion on climate change.

In providing a platform for scholars and practitioners to engage in interdisciplinary critical inquiry and teaching, the initiative is also a vehicle for action. Findings from fieldwork and applied research will be disseminated through published reports, public programs and international conferences in the United States, India, China, and other countries in the region. Beyond the academic enterprise, the availability of this knowledge on the ground will contribute to the ability of individuals, institutions, and communities within the region to engage and address contemporary issues of sustainable environmental policy-making.
