Interfaith Eco-links:

Religious Witness for the Earth
RWE is a national interfaith network dedicated to public witness in defense of Creation. Seeing climate change and environmental devastation as issues of justice, RWE invokes the loving spirit, selfless courage, and moral authority of the civil rights movement.

The National Religious Partnership for the Environment
NRPE is a formal alliance of major faith groups and denominations across the spectrum of Jewish and Christian communities and organizations in the United States. Its four founding partners include: The U.S. Catholic Conference, the National Council of Churches of Christ, the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, and the Evangelical Environmental Network.

Alliance of Religions and Conservation
ARC helps religious communities around the world care for the environment. They do this by: getting people involved in conservation through education and practical projects; encouraging faith-based groups to manage their own resources and assets to promote a healthy environment; and helping faith-based groups work with other religions and with conservation organizations to protect and enhance the earth's rich natural and human heritage. UK-based.

Earth Ministry: Connecting People with Creation
Earth Ministry was born out of a recognition of the underlying spiritual and moral roots of the environmental crisis, and the desire to help people of faith see more clearly the connections between their faith, their daily lives and ecological concerns.

Ecumenical Eco-links:

Green Church Network
Be prepared to close a fair number of pop-up ads ... but this site has a lot of useful information if you're patient!

North American Coalition for Christianity and Ecology
The NACCE is an ecumenical, voluntary, tax-exempt organization. It was established in 1986 to encourage the many strands of Christian tradition in the work of healing the damaged earth, out of a common concern and love for God's creation.

Eco-Justice Ministries
Eco-Justice Ministries is an independent, ecumenical agency that helps churches answer the call to care for all of God's creation, and develop ministries that are faithful, relevant and effective in working toward social justice and environmental sustainability.

Target Earth
The mission is "Serving the Earth, Serving the Poor." They focus on those regions of the world that are most devastated by the mix of human suffering and the destruction of the earth where people live on a dollar a day or less. They are a Christian-based group whose "service to the poor provides tangible hope to the children of future generations and dignity and justice to the oppressed of today."
