Restoring the Earth’s Resources: A Bahá’í Perspective

Friday, Aug. 14, 2009
2 p.m. – 3 p.m
Facilitated by Brett D. Hartman

Where the land is hurting, the people are hurting – healing the land and healing the people are one and the same. I will present preliminary results from my dissertation research, including a socio-ecological model of land restoration in developing nations and empirical results from a project in gully rehabilitation, wetland restoration and community development in the Bolivian Andes. These results will then be related back to quotes from the Bahá’í writings in a group discussion format to come to an understanding of the very clear guidance the scriptures have given us on how to best restore our environment.

  1. Note: the presenter for this breakout was unable to attend, but a large group assembled and used the hour to share personal perspectives on the topic. It was an interesting and diverse gathering and many keen insights and reflections were shared around the room. Unfortunately, we were not able to find a blogger in advance to report on the session.
