Greening Your Religious Community

Rev. Dr. Clare Butterfield, the Executive Director of Faith in Place, provides training in basic approaches to organizing your religious community to be more sustainable in its own practices and to promote sustainability in the homes of members and in the public square. The webinar offers basic tips for how to begin a greening program with your religious community, and how to advance one if you've already started, based on the experience of Faith in Place with over 700 religious and spiritual communities throughout Illinois. Specific topics include energy conservation, organizing a green team, incorporating a sense of place into worship and practice, supporting local and sustainable farming through the religious community, learning about water, and more.
