UN Biodiversity Conference Edition

Greetings from FEN, the Faith Ecology Network, an Australian hub for strengthening an interfaith dialogue between science and religion.


Biodiversity Conference Begins

Since 2020, FEN has had a focus on the wonder of biodiversity.

As we come to the end of 2022, I invite all our FEN networks to take a moment to read about,  listen to, and share what is going on in Montreal, Canada from the 7th - 19th December as this long awaited UN Conference begins.

We are sending this special edition because of its importance.

The Guardian has an excellent article which outlines the Who, What, Why of the Conference.

Making sense of Cop15: what to look out for in Montreal "Everything you need to know about the once-in-a-decade chance to stop the loss of biodiversity – and how you can help."

We invite you to share awareness of this important event through your networks to bring it to public attention.

As we end a big year for FEN with the launch of the Ten Ways
to Care resource, we look forward to your continued support in 2023. Please see the FEN website for the price list and order form.

We particularly look forward to receiving your good news stories about how you are using the Ten Ways to Care to animate, educate, inspire and take action for biodiversity.                             

FEN is run totally by volunteers. We seek your support with raising funds for a part-time Co-ordinator who will assist with growing our network, and help develop further our visual Ten Ways to Care resource. 
We need and appreciate any support, small or large.
Thank You.

Anne Lanyon, Faith Ecology Network Co-ordinator

Strengthening an interfaith dialogue between science and religion in the interests of advancing ecological consciousness and care for the Earth

The Faith Ecology network aims:

  • To share mutual appreciation of religious traditions regarding ecological insights
  • To discern and foster religious reasons for advocacy

Through the network we share the experience of religious and cultural diversity which enhances the depths of one’s own religious tradition. We grow in understanding of the connections between faith and ecology. We build up networks within and between faith traditions and environmentalists.

We would love your support to employ a P/T facilitator to help grow FEN.
