The Green Sanctuary Program

Green Community: Cross-Boundary Solidarity for Environmental Justice

The Cornerstone of the Green Sanctuary Program
6th Edition (October 2013)

The context for this revision is the current reality of ever-intensifying environmental crises, and the critical need to work in life-affirming coalition.  This edition complements the 2009 Manual, though seeks to ground environmental work in Unitarian Universalist (UU) identity and spirituality more, and in solidarity with marginalized communities.

To support congregations in this vital ministry, we will be offering:

  • Monthly conference calls to review the program and answer questions.  For upcoming calls, contact uua_greensanctuary @
  • Trained volunteer coaches to support congregational leadership.  A coach will be assigned once you have completed Stage 1 of the program.
