The Seventh Principle of Unitarian Universalism calls us to affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. On this page you will find resources for congregational engagement and advocacy from an environmental justice perspective.
Resources for Congregational Engagement
Worship materials, congregational best practices. organizational partners, and other resources for engagement.
Green Sanctuary Program
Voluntary participation in the Green Sanctuary Program provides a framework for congregations and congregants to proclaim and live out their commitment to the Earth. Karen Brammer manages the Green Sanctuary Program
Global Warming/Climate Change
Our 2006 Statement of Conscience calls Unitarian Universalists to adopt practices that will reverse global warming/climate change, and to do so in ways that are just and equitable.
Dependence on Fossil Fuels
Our economy and way of life is dependent upon a non-renewable fuel supply that is rapidly dwindling. As a result, we are undertaking increasingly drastic measures to access remaining supplies at great environmental and social cost.
Access to Essential Resources
Clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, safe food to eat, energy to heat and cool and get around, employment to provide for self and family... these are all essential to life and thus humans must have access to them.
Sustainable and Local Economy
Let's envision a new (or old) way of living, one that resists exploitation, privatization, and globalization of people and resources in favor of sustainable, locally accessible life styles, including the spiritual practice of Ethical Eating.
