Climate Action Teams (CATs) are formed by congregations and they determine their own goals and values. We provide below some ideas which the CATs can adopt if they wish.
As a Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) program, CATs’ values are founded on the UU-UNO Climate Justice Initiative values. These values are based on Unitarian Universalist Principles, with support from the 2006 UUA Statement of Conscience: "Threat of Global Warming, 2006 Statement of Conscience" and the 2015 Action of Immediate Witness (AIW): “Support a Strong a Strong, Compassionate Global Climate Agreement in 2015: Act for a Livable Climate”.
