Dear Eco-Stewards Community,
We are writing with two timely updates:
First, a reminder to join our Pilgrimage-in-Place with a guided walk through your watershed followed by a sharing opportunity on Zoom this Thursday night at 8:15pm EST. Details and a walking guide available here.
Second, news from Eco-Stewards Montana alum Dave Grace who has developed a youth mentoring network called the Youth Carbon Analyst Program (YCAP). This group seeks to fulfill the 2006 PC(USA) ‘carbon neutral lives’ resolution by advocating for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the denomination while measuring current emissions and monitoring reductions over time. Two of the high school Youth Carbon Analysts, Claire Wilson-Black & Anne-Fleur Winter, wrote an article reviewing National Capital Presbytery (Virginia, Maryland, and D.C.)’s 3.23.21 divestment decision as part of the YCAP ‘sharing climate action journey’s’ project.
We hope the Eco-Stewards community will encourage their Presbyteries and churches to prayerfully consider divesting from fossil fuels and the work of greenhouse gas inventories and climate action planning as part of the the larger goal of decarbonization!
