Certificate in Climate Justice and Faith


This certificate offers a cohort-based, online trans-continental curriculum which empowers participants to cultivate moral, spiritual, and practical power for leadership in the work of climate justice in communities of faith and in collaboration with others.  Topics covered include theology, ethics, and spirituality related to climate justice; climate change knowledge; and social change practices that connect ecological well-being with racial, economic, and gender justice. 


Participants will include a wide diversity of people from Global South and Global North, from highly impacted communities to those less impacted at this point. Working collaboratively, they will focus on building knowledge, skills, spiritual strength, and community power for the work of climate justice. Long-term collaboration and networking are expected to endure well beyond certificate completion date.

Community Organizing for Climate Justice as Faith Active in Love

This web-based three-part training in the arts of faith-rooted community organizing for climate justice will equip participants with skills, knowledge, spiritual grounding, and a community of support for organizing to address the climate crisis in ways that build racial and economic equity. A 3-day training session in February 2022 is followed by a mentored 12–week practice phase and a second training session of 2 days in May. The mentored section includes regular cohort gatherings for building a network of on-going support. Long-term collaboration and networking will be a gift of this program well beyond the training completion date.
