The program - Putting Sustainability into Action in Religious Facilities – will:
- provide an introduction to sacred texts and theologies that relate to environmental sustainability.
- present effective strategies and resources to help houses of worship ‘green’ their facilities
Teaching methods will include the study and discussion of sacred texts, viewing video clips showing religious leaders providing environmental leadership, “walk-throughs” of religious facilities to identify ‘greening’ opportunities, and group discussion. Ample time for discussion and interaction will make the event engaging and meaningful for participants.
