Abstract

How do participants in ecological rituals engage with and relate to place? How do they draw on their respective religious traditions and existing green prac tices in their perceptions of sacred space and ritual place? How do religious and non-religious green activists relate to the planet, given its prominence as a central symbol in climate change discourse? The present chapter aims to address these three questions by applying theoretical debates on the concept of sacred space to my own empirical fi ndings from a research project examining the involvement of Christian networks in the climate movement in Britain (2008–2012).
