Green Awakening Network
Green Awakening Network is a group of congregations of the United Church of Canada in the City of Toronto. We have come together to share ideas and experiences, in partnership with others, on how to respond to the challenge of climate change and how to reduce our “carbon footprint.” At this time our partners are Greening Sacred Spaces and the Centre for Church Development Leadership.
As a “network”, this is not a formal organization and it is intended to act more like a faith-based resource on climate change among UCC congregations. We hope that it will be an inspiration and a catalyst for action for the wider community in which we are located.
The Green Awakening project also provides a focused and action-oriented opportunity for networking among congregations interested in “eco-justice”.
The Green Awakening Network’s chief goals are to:
- develop a strong awareness of the imperative to act in response to the challenge to reduce greenhouse gases;
- develop a preparedness within our communities for the challenges that they face as a result of climate change;
- implement programs of action in partnership with community groups in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
