FAQs


What is JEM?

Joint Ecological Ministry (JEM) is a collaboration of religious communities and partners using their resources to promote caring for Creation and living within planetary limits.

Since our formation in 2014, JEM has sought to bring together leaders, treasurers, and JPIC representatives of religious communities to reflect on how we can use our resources to influence carbon emissions and alleviate climate change. We have explored divestment from fossil fuels, investment in green alternatives, shareholder engagement, Laudato Si, and the Paris climate talks. Each gathering has further enriched the conversation between communities on how we can make a difference.


Who is Dr. Heather Eaton?

Dr. Eaton is a professor at Saint Paul University. She has a PhD in ecology, feminism, theology and religious pluralism. Her recent work looks at religious imagination, evolution, Earth dynamics, peace and conflict studies on gender, ecology, religion, animal rights and non-violence.
