This fall youth from across the country will convene in Washington, DC to change the climate on global warming in the United States. Together, they will create a shift in the fight for a clean and just energy future.
At this summit there will be a track specific for youth ages 16-26 from faith communities, which IPL is a co-sponsor. Workshops include how specific faith groups view climate change, lobbying from the faith prospective, and organizing from the campus ministry on a secular campus, reducing your house of worship's carbon footprint, developing your faith communities green team, power mapping in your community of faith, programs to engage your community, like how to create a green worship service.
If you are interested in attending, email me and I will provide more specifics or connect you with an appropriate IPL representative from your area. The summit is going to take place from Nov 2- 5 at University of Maryland, College Park. Registration will be available soon at http://powershift07.org/register.
