The Path of Hope

Fee: $200

 

This four-week course is designed to prepare and mobilize you to advocate for strong U.S. climate policy leadership. Your group will learn about climate policy. As you learn, you will have chances to share what you are learning in your faith community; your local community; and the public square. This course works well online. 

White Fragility Reflection & Discussion

Fee: $300, split between KIPL and a local environmental justice group

This is a 3-week, 90 minute facilitated conversation about the book White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin J. DiAngelo. KIPL is offering this to predominantly white faith communities because we understand that there can be no addressing climate change without also addressing racism.  And to address it, we have to learn how to talk about it. This workshop works well online and is most effective in a group that already has a basic understanding of whiteness and white privilege.

This Old House of Worship​

Fee: $400

“This Old House or Worship” is an in-depth informational workshop focused on connecting your faith community to professionals that can offer insight into how your house of worship can be more energy efficient.    We will facilitate a cross-discipline panel of experts at your congregation to share knowledge and answer specific questions regarding energy efficiency ideas and best-practices. Panelists can cover a range of topics including boiler efficiency, lighting systems, solar installations, zone heating and cooling, building envelop and more.

Solar Tour

Fee: $200 – $400 without transportation. $350 – $550 with transportation.

Solar installations are becoming one of the most common ways for faith communities to care for creation.  The Solar Tour is an opportunity for your congregation to see first-hand how homes, businesses and houses of worship in your area are utilizing the power of the sun to improve their bottom-line and reduce their energy impact.  Tours can accommodate any size group.

Care for Creation Tour

Fee: $200 – $400 without transportation. $350 – $550 with transportation.

The ways that communities are caring for creation are more diverse today than they ever have been.  Our Care for Creation tour is tailored specifically to your area to explore the many sustainability projects that faith-based and secular communities have undertaken.  Some examples of things the tour may include are: electric vehicle charging stations, solar arrays, community gardens, LEED constructed buildings, semi-pervious pavement, wetlands restoration and many more.  The specific content of the tour will be determined by your location.
