Doing the CRES course was a great experience, and I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in how the Christian faith relates to the environment. The structure of the course means that everyone covers some basic ideas about religion and the environment, but also allows for a lot of flexibility so that you can pursue your own interests.

Are you passionate about God’s earth, involved with Eco Church, or a landowner concerned about faith and the environment?

I started the CRES course along with my doctoral program in climate change. The CRES course inspired and challenged me to think about how to integrate my knowledge with faith and real life. Particularly, writing a work diary was very helpful to reflect upon the environment and my daily life practice. Also working on a study paper certainly expanded the horizon of my knowledge and thought. The critical feedback from my CRES supervising tutors was …
