Values and Overall Goals for Climate Action Teams

Climate Action Teams (CATs) are formed by congregations and they determine their own goals and values. We provide below some ideas which the CATs can adopt if they wish.


As a Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) program, CATs’ values are founded on the UU-UNO Climate Justice Initiative values. These values are based on Unitarian Universalist Principles, with support from the 2006 UUA Statement of Conscience: "Threat of Global Warming, 2006 Statement of Conscience" and the 2015 Action of Immediate Witness (AIW): “Support a Strong a Strong, Compassionate Global Climate Agreement in 2015: Act for a Livable Climate”. 

Overall Goals

  1. Your congregation and local community’s carbon footprint is lowered.
  2. Climate change mitigation and adaptation policy is implemented at the local, national, and international level.
  3. Climate change solutions are socially just.
  4. Your Climate Action Team is actively involved in the UU Commit2Respond network.
