Renegotiating Our Relationship
With The Earth:
  A Conversation on Democracy,
Sustainability, and the Role of the Faithful

Nationally recognized environmental advocate and author Ibrahim Abdul-Matin will offer an inspirational call to action for people of all faiths when he speaks in Milwaukee next month on “Renegotiating our Relationship with the Earth: A Conversation on Democracy, Sustainability, and the Role of the Faithful.”

Please join us on May 4th, and share this opportunity with others.
 


 

THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!

We would like to thank everyone who came out on a snowy Sunday to the Milwaukee Sailing Center for "Making Waves for Water" on Jan 26. The event drew a great turnout of 175 adults and 24 children, and featured provided opportunities for reflection, connections, and commitment to action. In addition to the interfaith opening ceremony featuring representatives of ten faith communities, displays from 26 area sustainability and environmental organizations, and engaging children's acitivites, the event was the regional launch of GreenFaith's nationwide Water Shield program.

Pictures from the Event

This dynamic new initiative is designed to help congregations and individuals become leaders in conservation, protection, and celebration of water. The Interfaith Earth Network is GreenFaith's first regional partner in this program, and those who attended this event were among the first to join this nationwide movement towards appreciating, honoring, and responsibly stewarding this deceptively abundant resource.

HOWEVER, those who did not attend are most overwhelmingly welcome to explore Water Shield as a way for their congregation or faith community to engage more deeply and more responsibly with water.
