Unitarian Universalism's 7th Principle calls us to acknowledge and protect the interdependent web of existence of which we are all a part. We care for the planet and support sustainable communities so that life can be sustained for generations to come. We do this in solidarity and partnership with those most impacted by environmental destruction because it is only with their knowledge and experience the we can create change that is equitable and sustainable.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) works with the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth (UUMFE) to involve Unitarian Universalists in climate justice and solidarity work in the wider world. Within our Association, the Green Sanctuary Program program provides a framework for congregations to demonstrate their commitment to environmental justice by aligning their values with their actions through becoming certified Green Sanctuaries.
