The study and appreciation of our earth is deeply grounded in our Unitarian Universalist faith. Our seventh principle reminds us that everything on this earth is connected and dependent on one another. This is a very important tenet of our faith, especially as it relates to our beliefs and actions on climate change. How we approach our work with our environment and dealing with global climate change will differ with each person, but as Unitarian Universalist we are committed to action.
In the face of this historic threat to our existence on the planet, the UUA and UUSC are joining with the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth, the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice, and the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association in Commit2Respond, a religious response to the crisis of climate change. Commit2Respond is an initiative for climate justice awareness and action. We invite UUs and all people of faith and conscience to commit to respond in these three action areas:
•Grow the climate justice movement
•Advance the human rights of marginalized communities
•Shift to clean and renewable energy
