Green Sanctuary

The Green Sanctuary program, as defined by the UUA, provides a structure for congregations to examine their current environmental impacts and move toward more sustainable practices. The Peterborough Unitarian Universalist congregation achieved Green Sanctuary status in 2009, signifying that it has undertaken the process of reducing its carbon footprint through a series of actions and upgrades in its buildings and practices.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.
