Faith Communities Go Green, a collaboration between Green Umbrella and Equasion, believe that faith communities have a powerful voice to offer as the world confronts the climate crisis. Religious organizations and communities can become strong allies in the fight for climate action. All traditions emphasize the moral and ethical imperative to care for creation. Individual efforts are important, but collaboration within and among congregations can bring about much greater change. 

MISSION:
Partnering with religious communities to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all by mobilizing their moral voice to reduce the risk of catastrophic climate change.

VISION:

Religious communities collaborating to integrate care for creation in their lives and society.

Start a Green Team!

Having a green team in a house of worship enables lay members to influence attitudes and daily behaviors to better care of our planet for future generations.  Show people the connections between environmental issues and other issues they might care about, such as refugees or food insecurity.  Use the strengths of the people on your team.

We will also encourage people to become part of the solution by offering sign up opportunities for volunteer efforts like river and stream cleanups, and a booth for voter registration so they can make their voices heard.

    The festival is open to the community and there will be a number of activities for children including a plant give-away, face painting, and a craft area where they will use recycled materials to make art.

    This festival will include information and activities that focus on our responsibilities as faithful people to be stewards of God's creation, protecting the health of the planet to enhance the quality of life for all living things.
