气候行动

合作圈 around the world are taking concrete action to restore Earth, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect biodiversity.   More than 30% of the CCs list “环境” as one of their action areas.  URI is responding to the global climate crisis with a tri-fold approach and many interactive opportunities for hands-on Earth restoration, 气候行动, and ongoing learning.

纸的方法:

  1. Provide tools and resources that educate and inspire URI 合作圈 (CCs) and 成员 to take action in meaningful ways where they live;
  2. Work with the United Nations 环境 Program (UNEP) and other global partners to ensure that what’s at stake is visible and that the ways to help are clear; and
  3. Host ceremonial gatherings that honor Earth and celebrate our sacred eco-systems as worthy of our time, 感激之情, 和爱.

Kashi 基金会 sustainable organic garden initiative

Kashi 基金会 (a URI group in Florida, USA)'s Sustainable Kashi initiative hosts permaculture classes for the community in their organic gardens.

There are a number of ways we are working together to focus our efforts:

  • URI is using a list of 11 “Drawdown Solutions” on which CCs are already working.  This 13-minute video presentation describes “Drawdown” as a practice and shows how CCs are using the URI 行动领域 to draw carbon down from the atmosphere to restore ecosystems.  
  • 每月 气候行动 messages are shared across the URI network, providing resources for learning, announcing dates for days of global action, and celebrating the good work happening within CCs around the world.  
  • Thematic “learning sessions” encourage CCs and participants to teach and learn from one another online and locally.  The sessions aim to utilize the valuable skillsets that exist across the URI network and with other knowledgeable partners.  
  • “Gathering for Earth” happens the first week of each month as a place to talk about our care for Earth.  The gathering takes place at different times each month, to readily include URI members around the world.  If you would like to attend an upcoming “Gathering for Earth” or share another idea related to 气候行动 and Earth restoration, 请联系 劳伦·汉姆, URI 气候行动 Coordinator.

We’d love to see you at one of our events soon.  请加入bat365手机版app!

Enjoy this video of URI's young leaders' voices about the Earth.

These seven young people were asked to share a favorite religious text or spiritual teaching about caring for Creation and tending our Earth.  Thank you, URI 青年!  Happy, Happy Earth Day! 

Today April 22 is Earth Day.  Tomorrow and Every Day may we carry the Earth in our hearts. May we all love, care for, and appreciate our one common home.
