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