INTERFAITH GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE CAMPAIGNS
Who We Are
Wisconsin Environmental Decade, with a climate change
Campaign Mission Statement: "We are people of
many faiths gathered around a common commitment to protect and sustain
Campaign Vision Statement: "Move the care of Creation to the forefront of Wisconsin faith communities."
These interfaith campaigns are supported by grants to the National Religious Partnership for the Environment through the Eco-Justice Working Group of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, the Council on the Environment in Jewish Life, the US Catholic Conference, and the Evangelical Environmental Network.
In Wisconsin, the Campaign is being conducted by Wisconsin Interfaith IMPACT, a legislative advocacy and social education coalition of many faith groups.
Scientists tell us "global warming is real; the science is sound; and the effects are likely to be severe." We add "this is a religious issue!" We are called to care for all of God's children, especially the most vulnerable, and to protect and restore God's creation. Climate change is a threat to all people and all of creation.
What is the Wisconsin Interfaith Climate Change Campaign?
We seek to educate members of religious congregations on the dangers of climate change, to help them find effective ways to meet those dangers, to take specific practical actions locally to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to persuade elected officials to take bold action nationally and internationally.
Across a remarkably broad spectrum of faith groups and denominations, this Wisconsin effort joins with 21 other states to involve the American faith community in responding to the challenges of accelerated global climate change.
