INVEST IN OUR PLANET. WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Start a Green Team
Having a green team in a house of worship enables lay members to influence attitudes and daily behaviors to take 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.
Creating change within a congregation is more likely to happen if two or more people approach congregational leadership. An even greater chance of success occurs if the person represents an organized group of three or more people.
These suggested steps depend on the structure of your house of worship and the needs of your congregation.
