ECOCIV SESSIONS AT 2018 PARLIAMENT OF THE WORLD'S RELIGIOUS
Dr. Manish Mehta, Chair of JAINA Diaspora Committee organized and moderated two sessions on November 3 on the topic “Interfaith Collaborations for Sustainability” at the 2018 Parliament of World Religions emphasizing ways to simultaneously Reduce Our Carbon Footprint and Karmic Footprint.

The aim of two Parliament sessions was two-fold:
  1. To illustrate how our Jain beliefs in Non-Violence and Jain Way of Life recognize the inter-dependence of life and balancing of consumption and economic activity with ecology and environment
  2. To illustrate how Jains live and work, make positive career choices, and influence other faiths (in spite of our small population in the world) on the ecological front due to our ability to partner and leverage with interfaith groups and civic organizations, which allows Jains to promote our core values of compassion and care for humans and all life forms.
