Climate Crisis and Faith: Collaboration is the Path Forward

Climate Crisis and Faith Forums sponsored by the New York State Convention of Universalists

Collaboration is critical to developing the relationships, imagination and strategies needed to cultivate climate justice.

Sponsored by the New York State Convention of Universalists, Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth,  New York UU Justice, Fourth Universalist Society in the City of New York, and All Souls New York have begun a fruitful partnership to host a series of forum relating to spirituality and climate crisis.

As Widening the Circle of Concern: The Report of the UUA Commission on Institutional Change invites, “We need to put greater emphasis on what it means to be bound to one another in an interdependent web.”
