GreenFaith inspires, educates, organizes, and mobilizes people of diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds globally for environmental action.
Our work is based on beliefs shared by the world’s religious and spiritual traditions. We believe that protecting the Earth is a sacred act, and that environmental stewardship is a moral responsibility.
Here’s more about what makes us who we are.
We are committed to equity
We address issues of social and racial inequity that are caused or worsened by environmental degradation.
We value diversity
We work together with religiously, racially, and socioeconomically diverse partners, and seek to lift up everyone’s voices - particularly the ones that aren’t heard often enough.
We develop leaders
We train our partners to be religiously, ethically grounded environmental leaders.
We believe systemic and personal transformation are interrelated
We empower religious institutions and people of faith to embody and advocate for the changes they want society to reflect.
We practice eco-spirituality
We pray, meditate, and reflect together to reconnect with the sacred and the Earth.
We value local history and wisdom
Wherever we work, we first study and respect nature’s wisdom, local context, and existing religious-environmental work – then, we define our role.
We build and sustain long-term, values-based relationships
We believe that knowing people’s values and commitments, and being connected over a long period of time, are fundamental to strong and sustainable environmental change.
