The Sound of Hope and Spirit
Faith communities taking action on climate change...
A total of 116 actions are registered or reported so far. Click here to see a partial list.
It's essential that our movement convey the moral and spiritual implication of fighting climate change. Faith communities have the unique capacity to comunicate and address those deeper elements of this movement.
Some groups are already taking the lead in organizing actions for 350. In Massachusetts and elsewhere in the United States, churches have begun a campaign to ring their church bells 350 times and spread the 350 call to action.
We're inviting all faith communities around the world to add their voices.
Whether it be chanting, drumming, bells, or horns, consider how your congregation, temple, mosque or spiritual community might publicly make 350 prayerful, hopeful sounds.
To take part, please click "Create a Related Action" below.
Be sure to inform the local media about what you're up to and involve the larger community as well. Here is one example:
If you are a representative of a religious institution that wants to join this project and involve a larger network of communities please click here to get in touch.
Massachussetts Conference of United Church of Christ congregations, please report your actions here.
Episcopal Churches in New England, please sign up and report your actions here.
If your community has already participated in this bell ringing project, consider registering a 350 action for October 24 of this year (more information on that to come soon), and check out the Seven Year Plan for faith communities working towards "generational change" in the face of climate change and ecological destruction produced by the Alliance of Religions and Conservation with the support of UNEP.
