What is RESTORExchange Database?

What is RESTORExchange Database?

The RESTORExchange database is a multidisciplinary, publicly available resource whose primary function is to organize and curate existing efforts, publications, tools, and art that highlight the interaction between faith and sustainability. The database aims to build an advanced network of exchange and partnership between faith-based organizations, communities, and families on a local, regional, and global level in the common interest of environmental sustainability.

We recognize faith as a significant driver for engagement with the environment, government, culture, and community with more than 80% of the human population identifying with a religion. Thus, supporting existing projects and promoting community-level solutions is integral to the RESTORExchange database. This database is designed to allow you to find existing resources and also to upload your own resources that you’d like to promote and share with others.
