UUA Green Sanctuary 2030: Mobilizing for Climate Justice

This is the 7th iteration of the Green Sanctuary Program since it began in 1989. Learn more about Green Sanctuary 2030 vision, mission, and outcomes.

When 2020 became 2021 the Green Sanctuary team created a new name for what had been initially dubbed “GS 2020”. The year 2020 was so tough it is a relief to focus beyond it! And, the new name responds to the 2018 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that to prevent increasingly catastrophic and irreversible trends, global net emissions of carbon dioxide need to fall 45% from 2010 levels by 2030.

The new name for what was Green Sanctuary 2020 is now: UUA Green Sanctuary 2030: Mobilizing for Climate Justice – A Roadmap for Congregations to Rise to the Crisis.

We are hoping to continue the important work started when we were certified as a Green Sanctuary in 2013, but we will need help! If you’d like to work together to get re-certified, please contact Jill Rippe (j_rippe@charter.net).
