The Spiritual Dimensions of Sustainable Development Project

The Spiritual Dimensions of Sustainable Development” is the title of a project launched by the Earth Charter Task Force on Religion, Spirituality, and Ethics and the Jacob Soetendorp Institute for Human Values. The purpose of this project is to bring together a global alliance of religious, spiritual, and ethical organizations to deepen the understanding, public awareness, and practical application of the ethical and spiritual foundations of sustainable development.

The inspiration for the Spiritual Dimensions of Sustainability Project crystallized at the Earth Charter +10 Conference held in Ahmedabad, India in 2010, which called for deepening the general understanding of sustainable development that considers sustainability based on distinct but interrelated ecological, social, and economic dimensions.
