Cool Congregations workshop description:
Are you the “green sheep” in your congregation?
Do you need tools for taking the next step in leading your congregation’s response to climate change?
Join CIPL for a Cool Congregations Workshop!
The Cool Congregations Workshop will help you measure and reduce the carbon footprint of your congregation and member households. By attending, you will become a trained leader and receive a tool-kit for this unique stewardship program.
The Cool Congregations will provide what you need to make a difference in your home, congregation, and community. Research shows that small group models provide the best opportunity for real and lasting change. Faith communities have used the small group model for centuries! Find out how you can use this time-tested method to lead your congregation’s response to climate change.
Cool Congregations is organized as a set of small group gatherings facilitated by a leader trained at this February 11th workshop.
Participating households and congregations:
- Invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy

- Prevent carbon emissions that contribute to climate change
By attending the set of small group gatherings, participants:
- Measure their carbon footprint
- Explore ways to reduce their footprint
