strategic analysis of religious environmental field
As the religious-environmental movement has begun to spread, new forms of religiously-based environmental activity have appeared within individual houses of worship, regional and national denominations, interfaith networks. In addition, secular environmental groups have begun launching efforts to reach out to religious groups. GreenFaith is interested in partnering on a strategic analysis on the state of the religious environmental field which would address the following questions:
- What organizations are working in the field and where are they working?
- Using industry life-cycle theory as a context for analysis, what stage of development has the religious-environmental movement reached? What developments are the likely next steps in this young field’s evolution?
reducing Princeton's energy use and waste
- In the summer of 2013 a student intern visited local businesses to inform them of ways in which they could adopt more sustainable practices that would save them money. What are the best ways to convey this information to religious institutions? What are examples of successful programs and initiatives through religious institutions that have resulted in an increase in sustainable behaviors?
- Using information collected by a summer 2013 student intern on several zero waste cities, how can Sustainable Princeton adapt the programs from other communities to further inform and energize residents and businesses about the benefits of zero waste?
