Religions for Peace Indonesia Webinar Series II ~Environmental Conservation for Peace~

“Actualization of Religious Life in Developing
A Culture of Environmental Care in Society for Peace”


Since the Webinar series I, starting from Saturday, 13 August 2022, until now in October 2022,
everywhere in all parts of the world, including Indonesia, has increasingly felt and is feeling the effects of
“climate change”. The environment full of trees and healthy green plants has also changed into cement
gardens, upright standing structures and yard decoration. Rain and heat alternate irregularly. Flash
floods and fallen trees, human casualties, damage to roads and buildings, and difficulty finding clean
water sources are happening everywhere. Just recently, similar events happened in Bali and East Java.

When reflected well and deeply, this experience is a valuable lesson for humans who are the most
responsible for “climate change”. Humans tend to allow themselves to be greedy and avaricious and do
not care for the simplicity of life, a green environment that can provide enough oxygen for life around.
Does not this situation need to be the concern and responsibility of all generations of whatever
background, whether children, junior youths, youths and adults, women and men alike who profess to
have a religion but do not practice it in their daily life by respecting and loving nature?

For this reason, we, Religions for Peace Indonesia and Gita Santih Nusantara invite you all dear friends
from whatever background who are concerned and want to move together to give real meaning to our
faith through the movement to prevent climate change and its effects. The Series II of the Webinar on
Environmental Conservation for Peace: Actualisation of Religious Life In Developing A Culture of
Environmental Care in Society for Peace will be held on:
