Given the increasing threats of environmental changes to human societies
it is imperative to complement technological and economical problem
solutions with alternative perspectives from the humanities and the arts.
This pioneer book attempts to advance climate and environmental sciences
by including religion as a microcosm of cultural response to environmental
change. The authors are renowned in disciplines as diverse as hydrology,
religious studies, theology, cultural studies, philosophy and visual arts.
They exemplify how religion can contribute to sustainable mitigation of
climate change and to creative adaption to its impacts, thus preparing for
a deep cultivation of research on religion in environmental change.
