About the IERS

Problems of ecological vision of different religious traditions, cooperating with Christian churches and representatives of other religions, state and non-governmental public organizations. Such cooperation promotes the exchange of experience and traditions between Ukraine and other countries regarding the responsible attitude towards God’s creation – nature.


Acknowledging and perceiving nature as God’s gift is becoming more and more relevant in connection with growing environmental risks, the negative impact of human activity and increasingly large-scale climate changes. Our vision of ecology calls for a radical revision of the modern lifestyle of both individuals and communities as a whole.
