Participants (Circle of Trees)

Stewardship of the environment is a crucial, timely topic relevant to people of all ages, who live in all kinds of family relationships. Using this program, congregations can build multigenerational community by engaging adults, youth, and children fully as Unitarian Universalists heeding the call to action in service to earth. When publicizing the program, be clear that everyone is welcome—indeed, needed: single people, families of any configuration, adults of all ages. The program serves children as young as eight or nine and youth and adults of all ages. The UUA website offers additional resources for multigenerational programming in congregations.

Anticipate the participant who simply must move in order to remain engaged, or the older person who must be near the speaker in order to hear, can help you create an inclusive program. No one should be excluded from the program or its activities by real or perceived physical or other limitations. The most essential tool in the process of inclusion is awareness that adaptation may be needed. Some activities offer specific adaptations under the heading Including All Participants, immediately after the Description of Activity.
