Christian-Muslim Dialogue on Integral Ecology

Key Details

Catholic Social Teaching
Integral Human Development

Care for the poor and care for the earth have been central concerns to the Christian and Muslim traditions. Yet, there is little exploration from an interfaith perspective of the rich body of knowledge, analytical insights, institutions and practices which they have developed over centuries to promote human dignity and environmental protection. Each tradition is developing eco-theologies and undertaking faith-driven ecological activities but the dialogue between these remains scarce.

Led by LSRI Affiliate Farhana Mayer, and supported by the Berkley Centre at the University of Georgetown and the Qatar Foundation, the LSRI is preparing an open access resource book to foster interfaith collaboration for socio-ecological transformation. On the Care and Balance of Our Common Home: Christian-Muslim Dialogues will be published in late Spring 2025.

This research is conducted in collaboration with the Religious Communities and Sustainable Development Programme of the Humboldt University zu Berlin.
