Bridging Spirituality, Science & Environmental Ethics
For too long there has been an unnecessary chasm and false dichotomy between science and religion. Earth Keepers seeks to bring these respective fields together in mutually beneficial, thoughtful and helpful ways.
Science on a Sphere: Bringing Earth Science & Earth Care to Life
With over 550 data sets from NASA, NOAA, and various universities, Science on a Sphere uses incredible dimensional modeling to bring to life the most up to date science on climate change, wildfires, atmospheric storms, ocean currents and temperatures, pollution as well as how industrial and agricultural processes are impacting the Earth’s land, water and wildlife. Through interactive and dynamic presentations, Science on a Sphere couples earth science (the facts) and earth care (the values) together in a visual, educational, intuitive and compelling way aimed at helping spiritual leaders and faith communities better understand environmental issues.
Spiritual leaders and religious communities can use this incredible room-sized resource to promote scientific understanding, discuss environmental ethics, and engage in greater commitment to caring for and better stewardship of God’s Creation. From an ecological justice perspective, Science on the Sphere can also illustrate social upheaval, violence, and suppression of the press throughout the world over various periods of time. Because of the important environmental and social implications brought to life by Science on a Sphere various spiritual leaders associated with Earth Keepers serve as volunteers helping to deliver presentations and promote this important program.
There are over 130 Science on a Sphere locations throughout the world. In certain locations, Earth Keepers works to customize presentations and organize field trips for spiritual leaders and communities to visit a Science on the Sphere location and engage in a thoughtful discussion about science, spirituality and environmental ethics as well as explore tangible steps to better care for God’s creation.
