In this perspective, religions and modernity are requested to work in order to bring to light the potential and actual «affinities between religion and ecology that can be 'pivots' in the re-composition of relationships between religion and modernity» (Danièle Hervieu-Léger) and can promote, with their specific knowledge and methods, the development of ecological literacy.
