Join Georgia Interfaith Power and Light (GIPL) for their annual Green Team Summit on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Oak Grove United Methodist Church in Decatur, Georgia. Green Teams, faith leaders, and environmental activists from across the state are invited to gather for a time of fellowship and shared learning. This year’s theme is “Rooted in Resilience.”
Participants will learn practical insights for cultivating climate resilience in local communities and building a resilient democracy by advocating for environmentally just policies. This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Debra Rienstra, will inspire faith communities to develop and live out a resilient faith that carries a sense of hope and embodies an active response to addressing environmental injustices in Georgia and beyond.
The summit will also offer a series of workshops that will help equip congregations to build Green Teams, combat climate change through practical climate solutions, develop resiliency hubs, and engage in climate advocacy at the local, state, and federal levels.
General admission is $30. Student tickets are $10. Lunch, coffee, and light snacks will be provided.
