Coastal Green Team Summit Workshops

Coastal Green Team Summit Workshops are meant to equip you for meaningful action. You can choose two workshops from the list below to attend. This is a great chance to network with other Creation care champions and learn from credible community partners about the issues relevant to our shared work.

Advocating for Action: Building Resilient Communities
Led by Alex Muir

As advocates, whatever our cause, it can sometimes feel like we’re spinning our wheels without much success. This interactive workshop will help you improve your advocacy skills, whether you’re a beginner or experienced advocate. You’ll leave with the tools you need to create an actionable campaign in your community and have a better understanding of where coastal Georgia can use your help. One Hundred Miles is a regional nonprofit that uses community organizing and advocacy to achieve sustainable solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges facing our coast, including sea level rise and population growth. We’ll start by discussing prospective local solutions to these challenges. We’ll then walk through the process of creating an advocacy campaign for some of the solutions the group finds most exciting. 

Building Bridges: Communicating Across the Divide
Led by Chandra Brown

This workshop is an interactive, hands-on training for advocates and communicators.  Learn how to find influencers, build relationships, and advocate effectively for Creation care.

Develop your Congregation’s Super Power: Green Team 101
Led by Codi Norred

You know that you have some “green friends” in the pews, but how do you corral them for meaningful action together on behalf of your congregation? Learn how to establish or re-energize your congregation’s green team or sustainability committee. From recruiting volunteers and staff support to establishing a meaningful policy that informs congregants about sustainability commitments, you’ll learn best practices for maintaining a thriving Creation care program for your community of faith.
