Ohio Northern Hosts Speaker on ‘The New Green Religion’

Jan 3, 2008
Mark Wallace, associate professor of religion at Swarthmore College and author of several works on religion and nature, will present a lecture on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. in the McIntosh Ballroom on the campus of Ohio Northern University.

His lecture is entitled "The New Green Religion: Why Faith is Vital to Saving the Planet." In addition to the lecture, Wallace will meet with students and faculty throughout the day.

Free and open to the public, the lecture is sponsored by the ONU Working Group on Religion, Ethics and Nature (WGREN), with funding from the Metanexus Institute.

WGREN is a local initiative whose purpose is to facilitate dialog between the academic disciplines and non-academic communities on issues that relate to religion, ethics and the natural environment. The group's principal aims are to sponsor forums, provide opportunities for conversations between professors and students and increase awareness of the diverse religious perspectives on scientific and environmental issues.
