Fellows have given the program high marks.

I can tell you that this is a fantastic program.
                           LeeAnne Beres, Executive Director of Seattle’s Earth Ministry

Without this program, I would never have taught classes on eco-Judaism or launched an interfaith values based internship through the Office of Sustainability at Princeton.
                           Rabbi Julie Roth, Executive Director,
                           Center for Jewish Life at Princeton University

The GreenFaith Fellowship Program has helped me recognize and name the connections between my spirituality and my passion for environmentalism. Being a Fellow is a fundamental part of my education as a religious leader.
                           Rebecca Edwards, seminarian at Virginia Theological Seminary

The Program consists of three three-day retreats focused on religious-environmental education and worship, “green” consumption and facility management, and environmental justice. Fellows participate in monthly webinars and read about religious-environmentalism from a range of perspectives.  Each Fellow writes their own eco-theological statement and carries out a leadership project in their own community. 

GreenFaith seeks applications from diverse ethnic and religious communities.  For application materials, click here.

I hope you’ll join us for the May 12 webinar, and pass this e-mail to your contacts who would be interested.

In faith,

Fletcher Harper
