Religions for the Earth Conference

More than 200 religious and spiritual leaders from across the world will gather at Union Theological Seminary in New York City for the Religions for the Earth conference. This is no ordinary conference: as the world’s political leaders prepare to address an unprecedented moral crisis, Union will offer a unique platform for the world’s ethical leaders to voice the concerns and commitments of the spiritual and faith traditions. Participants are prepared to use their reach and influence to galvanize faith-based action. This action will be in support of a just climate treaty and the new measures within nations, regions and cultures that will be necessary to support the treaty and protect the most vulnerable among us in this time when profits are prioritized over the wellbeing of people, and the effects of pollution are being felt in extreme weather patterns, exacerbated social instability and a decrease in the quality of food, air and water.

Why Union? Why Now? -

Watch the video that tells our story.


A heart of open space encircled by magnificent buildings: that’s Union. We are a school where nothing less than God is the subject of our study, and where the care of the world is our calling. We are Christian, ecumenical, interreligious, world-engaged, broad in thought, and welcoming to all who venture in.


'Happy' in NYC!

Happiness at Union as a religious practice.


Why are we happy at Union? Individual expression, social justice, community. And Pharrell Williams.
