The Baha’i-inspired Interfaith Climate Group invites you to support a community-wide climate conversation-to-action program. Our goal is to engage all ages in discussions and activities to address the environmental and social challenges of our time. Our global network of support unifies and amplifies the voices of people who are creating a sustainable, just and peaceful future.
The Interfaith Climate Group began in 2013 with a small group of Baha’is who took a Climate Change course from the Wilmette Institute. The course, offered annually, provides a basic scientific understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change, discusses its ethical challenges, and relates them to spiritual teachings. We believe that the faith community shares a moral mandate to care for the human family and all of Creation.
We support the community-wide climate conversation-to-action program of the Climate Collaboratory, a pilot project of We, the World and the University of Florida Extension. By sharing stories of who is doing what for a sustainable, just and peaceful future, we create a network of support for young people who are just stepping into the arena of making the change they want to see in the world.
Our initial eight-month Climate Collaboratory program in 2020-21 set the stage for a community-wide climate conversation-to-action program in 2021-22. We invite children, youth, young adults, adults and elders to honor their own role in making a world that works for all, and join the global interfaith climate movement.
We each have our own story about this critical moment in Earth’s history. Together we are writing the story that future generations will tell their children and grandchildren.
Interfaith Devotional and Climate Conversation.
On the last Sunday of each month, the Interfaith Climate Group and Baha’is of Alachua County host a devotional and discussion to engage all ages in the community-wide climate conversation-to-action program.
