Many Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations have earned official recognition for living out their commitment to the Earth. They have created sustainability measures in congregational life and have encouraged each congregant to make environmentally-friendly choices while working towards creating environmental justice. These congregations have earned Green Sanctuary designation as they continue their commitment to creating and maintaining a religious community that has a fundamental, bottom-line, commitment to living in harmony with the Earth.
Congregations that have already earned official Green Sanctuary recognition can now earn official recognition for continuing their work to restore Earth and renew Spirit through the Green Sanctuary re-accreditation process.
Congregations can begin the re-accreditation process four or more years after having earned initial Green Sanctuary accreditation. According to each congregation's individual, unique situation, the re-accreditation process to may take as little as three months or as long as two years to complete. The process is outlined below.
