ARC and the Faiths

ARC works with 12 faiths world wide. These faiths and their networks embrace 85% of the world's population: some 5 billion human beings.

Drawing on their traditions, faith communities are working in countless ways to care for the environment. Each faith has its own distinctive history and teachings, and its own unique relationship with the natural world.

This section outlines the basics of each faith's history, beliefs and teachings on ecology. At the end of each faith section are links for further information.

Around the world religious organisations have immense influence socially, educationally, politically and culturally both at national and local levels. This influence, combined with their spiritual insight and commitment makes them one of the most powerful agents for social change in civil society. For more on this aspect of working with religious organisations link here.
