Eco-Faith from Home
As many of us continue to practice our faith from home, now is a great chance to take environmental and climate action! The GIPL Team has put together a list of ways to engage with GIPL and in eco-advocacy from home as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 global pandemic. Learn more.
Additionally, we encourage you to register for our month of action – Eco Faith from Home: 30 Days of Climate Action (April 13 – May 13, 2021).
Green Team Registry
Register your Green Team to receive specific Green Team communications, tips, resources, and to receive regular contact from GIPL’s program staff. GIPL wants to know what programs you’re working on and explore ways we can support you.
If you don’t have a Green Team in your community of faith but are ready to form one, read on!
Forming a Green Team
A Green Team is a group of three or more passionate individuals dedicated to advancing sustainability and environmental action in a community of faith.
Green Teams meet regularly to explore their faith tradition’s commitment to care for the natural world and to cultivate individual and communal practices that embody these commitments.
Green Teams seek to educate their faith community, employ practical solutions to combat climate change at the congregational and community level, and challenge unjust systems that perpetuate harm of creation and neighbor.
Green Team Coaching
GIPL’s Green Team Coaching Program is designed to provide additional structure and support for new Green Teams, or Green Teams that are re-launching. Through this program, eligible Green Teams will receive a GIPL Green Team Coach for 12 months that will provide hands on support, regular in-person and virtual consultations, and assistance in developing a Green Team specific strategic plan.
Coastal congregations who are interested in Green Team Coaching should contact Hermina Glass-Hill, Coastal Engagement Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All other congregations should contact Hannah Shultz, Program Associate, at email@example.com
