trainings + resources
We offer online trainings, the GreenFaith Fellowship Program, and a speakers bureau. We’d love to connect with you!
We offer a series of introductory calls to connect with you, share how we work, and to start building skills and knowledge together.
WELCOME TO GREENFAITH
Join this introductory call and share why you care about climate change and the environment. You’ll learn about GreenFaith’s mission and vision and see for yourself how our religious, spiritual, and moral convictions can – and do – make an impact.
THE POWER OF ORGANIZING
We are stronger together. It’s that simple. And when we’re organized together, we can accomplish far more than when we’re working alone. On this call, you’ll start learning to build local, faith-based communities of care and resilience – we call them GreenFaith Circles. GreenFaith Circles are where we come together with people from diverse faiths and goodwill to build moral power and win climate and environmental victories.
COMMUNITY CALL FOR CARE AND RESILIENCE
Spiritual practice, reflection, emotional openness and prayer are at the heart of who we are. Dial in to our next Community Call for Care and Resilience and you can experience the heart of GreenFaith for yourself. On these calls, we feature diverse spiritual leaders who create a safe, supportive space for participants to share their stories and connect with other people of faith who are responding to environmental and climate injustices.
The world’s religions offer a unique and vital collection of moral teachings and spiritual insights about the Earth, all people, and the sacred. They also inspire us to work with passion and reverence for environmental and climate justice. Join our next eco-theology call and discover the environmental resources within the world’s religious and spiritual traditions.
GREENFAITH FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Some Fellows will have already worked on climate and environmental issues from a religious perspective and are seeking to deepen their work and connect it with a larger community. Others will be at an early stage of their engagement and are prepared to make a substantial commitment to the field. For both, the Fellowship Program provides an intensive experience of spiritual practice, education and training, enabling Fellows to:
- deepen their commitment
- learn about the intersection between theology, climate change and race, gender, poverty and other social justice issues
- develop relational organizing, campaigning and public leadership skills.
During their training, with affirmation and ongoing support from GreenFaith and their peers, Fellows will start or strengthen GreenFaith Circles and mentor others in their region to do the same, increasing the growth and influence of the religious-environmental movement.
The next Fellows class will be announced in November 2020.
The next application period will open in August 2021.
