Climate & Environmental Justice

A Green Sanctuary Logo

In 2007, the Unitarian Church of Calgary achieved recognition as a “Green Sanctuary.” Being a Green Sanctuary is one of the ways we work toward a vision of healthier, more sustainable future.

Our Climate & Environmental Justice goals:

  • To build awareness of societal environmental issues among Unitarians
  • To generate commitment for personal lifestyle changes
  • To motivate Unitarians to community action on environmental issues
  • To build a connection between spiritual practice and environmental consciousness
  • To build awareness of and rectify environmental injustices.

Climate & Environment Action

Among our initiatives are:

  • Film nights featuring an environmental issue. Join us for a movie and a lively discussion afterwards
  • Gardening talks by local experts in partnership with the Calgary Horticultural Society and the Permaculture Calgary Guild
  • A community garden program at the church assigns raised beds to people wishing to raise their own vegetables
  • Participation in protest marches and letter-writing related to climate change issues

We invite all who share these values to join us on this journey of connection, sustainability, and hope. Contact Climate & Environmental Justice to get involved.
