This session celebrates a new book by Palgrave Macmillan, a collaboration of scholars and activists who find connections between religion, sustainability & place. Five of the authors from this new book will speak about their research, all of which tells us something of how faith communities may contribute positively to the planet's health through engagement at different geographic scales. The book, titled Religion, Sustainability & Place: Moral Geographies of the Anthropocene, will be on bookshelves in March of 2021.
