Mission

The Berry Forum is a creative resource for the entire Iona College community, and for the many other dialogue partners – regional, national and global – whom we hope to engage in Berry’s Great Work to awaken the ecological phase of human development.

The Mission of The Thomas Berry Forum for Ecological Dialogue at Iona is to:
  • Educate for awareness of the integral Earth community
  • Facilitate deeper understanding of human responsibility for care of Earth
  • Promote scholarly dialogue and engagement around significant ecological concerns
  • Celebrate our communion in the family of God’s creation
  • Inspire hope and empower action for a sustainable and environmentally just world, with special concern for the most vulnerable members of the Earth community
