IPL’s Faith Climate Action Week 2022 – Sacred Trust: Our children’s right to a livable future

Feb 9, 2022 | Blog

Plan ahead for Earth Day: The 2022 Faith Climate Action Week printed organizer’s kit is now available! The resources in this kit will equip you to lead faith-based discussion and action at your congregation to safeguard a thriving Earth for future generations.

Faith Climate Action Week is Interfaith Power & Light’s annual program of climate-themed worship services and sermons that spans ten days of activities around Earth Day, with this year’s dates being April 22 – May 1, 2022. Join the community of people of faith preaching, teaching, and acting to heal the climate in 2022! 

The theme of 2022’s Faith Climate Action Week is “Sacred Trust: Our children’s right to a livable future.” We will examine our responsibility to safeguard our Earth for future generations, and how our faiths call us to respond with bold and just solutions to climate change.

The value-packed kit includes a Sacred Trust guide with information on intergenerational climate justice and the moral and legal rights of our children and grandchildren to a livable climate. Also included are 50 printed postcards to collect pledges to vote with the climate in mind. There are also suggestions and resources for how to get engaged in supporting local climate justice action, and a call for art created by youth and children that envisions a positive future for our Earth through the #ImagineIPL campaign. Additionally, you will find faith-based discussion materials, suggested short films, and a Youth and Children Blessing ceremony.  

Faith Climate Action Week 2022 offerings also include resources for sermons, talks, worship services, a film screening kit for the featured film, Youth v Gov, and more.

Youth v Gov is a powerful film that follows 21 young Americans suing the world’s most powerful government to protect their constitutional rights to a stable climate. Coming in March you will be able to sign up to screen the film for your group for free by streaming during the window of April 11-May 1, either to an in-person audience or over Zoom. IPL will provide a film screening kit with faith-based questions for discussion and instructions on sharing the film over Zoom.

Faith Climate Action Week 2022 offerings on our website also include sample sermons and talks, and resources for worship services.

Let’s join together to celebrate future generations with faith-filled climate action!

NEW! IPL is excited to announce that the Faith Climate Action Week kit is now available in Spanish as a free download!

Spanish speaking communities are especially concerned about climate change according to a study by Yale Climate Communications, and are more willing to engage in climate activism than their white counterparts because of their greater exposure and vulnerability to extreme weather events due to climate change.

Please help build the movement of people of faith acting on climate by sharing the Spanish Faith Climate Action Week materials with your Spanish speaking colleagues and friends who might use it in their Spanish speaking congregations or organizations.

The 2022 featured film, Youth v Gov, will have Spanish subtitles. Access Spanish language information about the film and the Faith Climate Action Week organizer’s kit on the Faith Climate Action Week website: Click the “En Español” button on this page.

Free download of the kit in English coming in March!
