The conference

Our goal is to empower and inspire interfaith student leaders.

The Ripple Conference offers time to learn, engage, reflect, and share. Together we will learn about other traditions, including religious, spiritual, and secular worldviews. We will engage in social justice and interfaith dialogue. In smaller community groups, we will share our own perspectives and process the conference experience. Other events within the conference will offer time to share music, stories, and delicious local food.

 

The Ripple Conference offers a balance of structured and unstructured, small and large group events to provide a unique conference experience. We don’t just want to talk about interfaith, we want to make it happen.

 

We leave you with the question:  Where will your ripples go?

 

2022 Theme:
Sustained interfaith

 

“It is our collective and individual responsibility… to preserve and tend to the world in which we all live in.” - Dalai Lama

We, as human beings, are always connected to the earth that feeds us. Despite what we believe in or what we may practice, we have a responsibility to uphold and sustain this earth. Not only do we hold responsibility to take care of our planet, we must acknowledge each other and come together to preserve what we believe.

This year’s Ripple Conference focuses on collective and individual activism to sustain our interfaith and environmental justice movements. How can the environment bring multifaith perspectives together? How do we lay a foundation for a Sustained Interfaith? What does sustainability look like in a religious context? The 2022 Ripple Conference is a place where we will be able to explore many different perspectives and ideas about sustainability and faith. We hope to encourage people to not only question their own biases, but also ask themselves how to further engage in sustained interfaith within their own communities.
