Earth Day

For the past five years, UU Ministry for Earth has released “Climate Justice Month” resources celebrating action for climate justice from World Water Day (March 22) through Earth Day (April 22). This year, UU Ministry for Earth is taking things to a new level and celebrating a whole Spring season of sacred activism! After all, 2019 is UUMFE’s 30th anniversary year — why not go big?

Spring for Change is the theme for this Spring Season of Sacred Activism, as well as for UUMFE’s Earth Day Sunday resources.

Congregational Eco-Heroes

Since 2008, UUMFE has encouraged UU congregations to take Earth Day as an opportunity to honor those in their own community who have carried the torch of Earth ministry and/or environmental justice. You can honor a congregational eco-hero by submitting their name when you register your congregation’s Earth Day events. UUMFE offers award certificates for download, or you can celebrate and honor your eco-hero in your own way!
