Climate Action Team Update ~ May 17, 2024

Climate Action Team Update

Thank you to everyone who attended CAT’s recent discussion during Coffee Hour — we had a great turnout and thoughtful discussion.The Climate Action Team’s next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 28 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at UCM. We hope you’ll put it on your calendar and that many of you will be able to attend. This will be an in-person meeting.

We will be discussing net zero work done here at UCM in the past, alternatives to fossil fuels to consider for heating the church, and other work we are engaging with as we re-certify as a Green Sanctuary.

We also encourage you to save the date for upcoming collaborations with 350VT ~ they will be offering five programs at UCM between May and September; the first will be on Wed. May 29 at 6:00 PM.  Please let us know (email below) if you’re available to help with set-up for this event.

We are also considering options for a possible field trip, as we offered last summer, as well as additional suggestions for summer initiatives.

We are looking for a new Chair (or co-chairs) for the Climate Action Team ~ are you feeling called to this work? You won’t be alone! There are currently over 50 participants to collaborate with.

Please email Anne Sarcka to RSVP for the meeting on May 28 — and if you’re not able to attend but have ideas to share, please also send your thoughts to Anne.

There continues to be significant work to do to help rescue the earth, our blue boat, our home. Hope you’ll be on board!
