INVEST IN THE PLANET. WHAT WILL YOU DO?
How did we start…
Faith Communities Go Green, originally an impact Team within Green Umbrella, was founded to partner 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.
- We keep open minds, value everyone’s ideas and respect diverse opinions.
- We use accessible language and translate ideas into language that is easily understandable.
- We are willing to learn.
- We respect the process and commit to it; we believe process is product.
- We commit to finding the right questions and struggle with common questions.
- We keep the common good top of mind.
- We are willing to compromise.
- We are willing to take risks.
- We utilize a systems lens by maintaining a holistic, long-term vision of the full system rather than focusing on parts of it.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
