New group addresses our ecology

"http://www.vanderbilthustler.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2005/03/02/42254 bc87e16a"

A new faculty-based research group has been created to address environmental and spiritual issues surrounding not only the Vanderbilt community and Nashville, but the world. The group, called the Ecology and Spirituality Research Group, is a part of the Center for the Study of Religion and Culture, one of Vanderbilt's Interdisciplinary Research Centers.

According to Co-Director David Wood, "We are committed to understanding the full extent of the global environmental situation, what are the priorities for change, how to help people appreciate both the scale and urgency of the problem, and what they can do about it."

A cornerstone of the group's philosophy is the relationship between ecology and spirituality, a relationship that is neither obvious nor often talked about, but still very important.

The group finds many resources in the Christian tradition, as well as core American values, that may help steer people "in a greener direction," says Wood.
