Jesuits who work across the vast Amazonian rainforest are collaborating to protect the world’s largest eco-system – and its peoples – from destruction. Together with their lay partners, they met recently in Manaus, Brazil, with representatives from various non-governmental organisations and funding agencies, as well as from school and university networks, for the launch of the Pan-Amazonian Project.

In my previous “Yoga of Ecology” post, I shared the truly brilliant and compassionate work of the Green Wheeling Initiative (GWI), a grassroots ground-up local food movement in Wheeling, W. Va. The GWI is helping the diverse peoples of Wheeling to reclaim their backyards and the bounties in their backyards through community gardens, cultural workshops, grant programs, and campus ecology events, amongst much else.
