Welcome to the Religion and Environmental SusTainability Online Resource Exchange (RESTORExchange).
The purpose of this network is to provide easier access to reliable and helpful resources for faith-based sustainability work in communities, congregations and families. With the growth of faith community environmental work in recent decades, there are now many resources available to help empower faith community sustainability projects, but often those resources are little known or hard to find. This database is designed to allow you to find existing resources and also to upload your own resources that you’d like to share with others.
You can search the database either by browsing the items in the Browse tab, searching with keywords in the Search tab, clicking search words in the tag cloud, or you can follow the link here to submit resources for inclusion in the database.
The RESTORExchange is a collaborative project of many partners, and is designed to welcome as many collaborators as are interested. The School of Environment and Natural Resources at The Ohio State University (OSU) hosts the database, but many partner have contributed to its development, including the National Religious Partnership for the Environment, the UNEP FaithForEarth Initiative, Ohio Interfaith Power and Light, the Diocese of Columbus Creation Care Team, the OSU Center for Ethics and Human Values, and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) Application Services Team. The database website can be customized and branded with the logo of collaborating organizations; use this link to contact the site administrator about collaboration.
