DWI Endorses The Faith For Forests Declaration

Updated: Oct 11, 2019

The DWI team recently attended an inspirational talk given by Dr. Jane Goodall and Paul Hawken during the Mountain Towns 2030 Net Zero Summit. Paul Hawken spoke about the impetus behind Project Drawdown (www.drawdown.org), and Dr. Goodall shared pieces of her life story to instill within the audience a message of hope and a call to environmental action.


In the video below, Dr. Goodall introduces the Interfaith Rainforest Initiative @faiths4forests, a new global effort uniting people of all faiths to end tropical deforestation. It is a call to action for all faith-based organizations to uphold a moral urgency within the movement to end the destruction of the planet's rainforests. The Deep Water Initiative is proud to endorse this declaration as a initiative that bridges communities of faith with environmental justice and action.

The Deep Water Initiative is inspired by the ecological importance of water as an all-pervasive element that sustains life on this planet.  The metaphysical importance of water as both a cleanser and regenerator has been upheld by many cultures throughout the world, and is celebrated within the creation myths of different religious and spiritual traditions.  The Deep Water Initiative has been particularly influenced by the significance of water as demonstrated within the Five Books of Moses.

 

*The Deep Water Initiative is classified as a private operating foundation that qualifies for tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
