Why Celebrate Earth?

Duration: 20 min

Producer: Off the Fence 

Description: Martin and Miranda discuss the urgent need for a new, celebratory approach between Faith Groups, the Arts, and Conservationists. We join Martin Palmer – also an Anglican lay preacher– in his own church in North Stoke, England, where he holds a funeral for the 160 species that have been declared extinct in the past decade.

What is the role of ritual in caring for our common home? How do we overcome our feelings of anxiety and paralysis over environmental destruction? Martin shows us one example of how Faith and Ritual can help us come to grips with our responsibilities as members of our common home.

Participant(s):

Martin Palmer, FaithInvest

Miranda Krestovnikoff, Broadcaster/President, RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds)

Yoga and the Environment

Duration: 20 min

Producer: Off the Fence 

Short Description: Sangita recently completed her opera based on the traditional Hindu myth of the Divine Goddess, Durga. Performed with audience participation, a short film version of the Opera allows viewers to experience some of the powerful emotions that participants feel as they sing and dance. The Durga Opera is rooted in traditional Hindu song-cycles and uses ancient Sanskrit mantras. The dance utilises yoga positions that anyone can learn.

Sangita explains how singing mantras can reattune the singer’s relationship with their body and with the natural world. Sangita wants us all to reconnect to a feminine divine force that has been overlooked in recent years, but whose presence she believes is vital if we are to save our planet.

Participant(s):

Sangita Lakhanpal, WWF

Christian Faith and the Environment

Duration: 20 min

Producer(s): Off the Fence 

Short Description: In Ethiopia, Church grounds protect what little remains of Ethiopia’s highland forests. The ideas of “sacred” and “protection” are explored in a lively discussion between Miranda and Martin. Are Faith Groups acting too passively in their protection of nature? And are conservation organisations too scientific and dry in their conservation work? Does nature exist solely to serve humanity? Or does nature have its own right to exist, independent of humankind?

Participant(s):  

Martin Palmer, FaithInvest

Miranda Krestovnikoff, Broadcaster/ President RSPB
