One Earth Action:

Common Ground

Faith Climate Action Week 2024

During the week surrounding Earth Day 2024 (April 19-28), Interfaith Power and Light is inviting faith communities to join their annual week of spiritually informed Earth practice, Faith Climate Action Week. This year the theme is “Common Ground: Cultivating Connections Between Our Faith, Our Food, and the Climate.” 

They will be examining our responsibility to use agricultural practices that safeguard our Sacred Earth and how our faiths call us to respond with just solutions for all.

From the Organizers:

From Interfaith Power & Light’s Faith Climate Action Week website:

Faith Climate Action Week is Interfaith Power & Light’s premier week of climate action: sermons, worship services, educational events, and hands-on-action to show that people of faith are leading the way to heal our climate. It is a 10-day period of activities in celebration around Earth Day. Through the actions of people like you, Faith Climate Action Week has reached close to 2-million people with more than 5,000 climate and Earth stewardship sermons and talks nationwide.

All major faith traditions call on their believers to be good stewards of Creation, and to care for their neighbors — especially those in our community most impacted by environmental injustice. Join IPL in highlighting this calling. IPL celebrates Faith Climate Action Week around Earth Day each year, but you can use IPL resources to activate your congregation year-round to care for the Earth…

This year’s theme is Common Ground: Cultivating Connections between Food, Faith, and Climate.
