Congregations and congregants working together to restore Earth and renew Spirit.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Green Sanctuary Program is evolving to meet the changing needs of our time.
There are new standards and applications for those just beginning the process and those who are Accredited who now seek Re-Accreditation. If your congregation fits into either of these categories, it is important that you contact the GS Manager at uua_greensanctuary @ uua.org.
For those who began work for candidate and certified status before October 2013, your work will be assessed using the 2009 version of the Green Sanctuary Manual (PDF, 121 pages).
The Green Sanctuary Program, originally nurtured and managed by the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth, was designed to give roots and wings to the vision that, together, we can create a world in which all people make reverence, gratitude, and care for the living Earth that is central to our lives.
Voluntary participation in the Green Sanctuary Program provides a framework for congregations and congregants to proclaim and live out their commitment to the Earth.
By reading the Green Sanctuary Manual and following the Green Sanctuary Program Process, any congregation can become a Green Sanctuary.
For more information contact uua_greensanctuary @ uua.org.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
Please consider making a donation today.
