The Ground for Hope Initiative

Environmental Education & Training Conferences for Lay Leaders, Clergy, Seminarians

GreenFaith's Ground for Hope initiative helps people of faith put their beliefs into action for the earth.

  • Deepen their preaching, teaching and programming on the environment
  • Learn to 'green' the operation of their facilities and homes
  • Get tools to advocate for a clean environment for at-risk communities
  • Meet other clergy and lay people who care about a clean, healthy planet.
