Green Faith Fellowship Retreat

DDMBA hosted a GreenFaith Fellowship Retreat organized by GreenFaith at Dharma Drum Retreat Center on 21-24 May, 2012. Through a combination of meditation, presentations and round table discussions, the 24 participants from all religious traditions gathered at the retreat center to immerse themselves in educational, spiritual and vocational growth and skill development in religious environmentalism.

The GreenFaith Fellowship Program is the first comprehensive education and training program in the US to prepare lay and ordained leaders from diverse religious traditions for religiously based environmental leadership. Using insights gained by successful religious leadership development programs and resources developed through past religious-environmental initiatives, the program will educate leaders from diverse backgrounds to develop and implement plans to address environmental issues in their vocational settings.
