Creation Care Collective presents the Creation Care 101 Program – a free program, toolkit, and community building resource, designed for the church. Together, we engage congregations in faith-based conversations for practical applications of environmental healing and justice, in church and home contexts.
Developed alongside advisors at Yale’s Forum on Religion and Ecology and Oxford University’s Laudato Si’ Institute, the Creation Care 101 Program connects the dots between faith, science, justice and creation care. This program is free for churches and welcomes people from all parts of the Christian family.
Recommended by churches across the U.S., across 10 denominations!
