Sustainable Environmental Initiatives in Costa Rica
Hooma Multani is the Representative of United Religions Initiative in Costa Rica (URI), an interfaith organization that brings together people of different ethnicities, religions, and races, encouraging them to take part in environmental initiatives. The most challenging and rewarding project aims to reconnect people with nature through a “Building school” where they are taught how to build ecological shelters and to grow food making use of natural resources exclusively. Interfaith plays an important role as URI’s members and activists have very diverse religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, and they are all unified by a universal spirituality.
