1994 Business Resolution

Because the Unitarian Universalist Association has long been an advocate for world peace, human rights, and environmental protection; and

Because our principles, our concerns, and our vision for the future have often been expressed through our support for the United Nations and our celebration of Earth Day; and

WHEREAS 1995 marks both the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first Earth Day and the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter in San Francisco; and

Recognizing that 1995 also marks the third anniversary of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, which focused international attention on the need for environmental justice and sustainable development; and

Affirming our desire to state our Unitarian Universalist principles through the administration of our institutions;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the General Assembly calls upon the Board of Trustees, the Officers, and the Departments of the Unitarian Universalist Association to take note of the 1995 United Nations and Earth Day anniversaries, by:

  1. supporting appropriate commemorative activities at the United Nations and the 1995 General Assembly, especially in the San Francisco Bay area; and
  2. publishing a 1995 information package that will alert congregations to opportunities for supporting the United Nations, environmental justice, and sustainable development; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the General Assembly thanks C*UUYAN and the General Assembly staff and volunteers for their continuing work in encouraging recycling and other responsible environmental activities in connection with General Assembly events.
