"My generation has largely failed until now to preserve both justice in the world and to preserve the planet. It is your generation that must make us be accountable to make sure that we don't betray the future of humankind. — United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres"
Delaware IPL realizes the power of empowering and supporting our youth on climate action! The world is home to 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 to 24 — the largest generation of youth in history. Young people are increasingly aware of the challenges and risks presented by the climate crisis and of the opportunity to achieve sustainable development brought by a solution to climate change.
Nurture your love of the earth and your children and grandchildren by taking part in Interfaith Power & Light’s Faith Climate Action Week. This is IPL’s annual program of climate-themed worship services and sermons that spans ten days of activities in celebration of Earth Month. This is IPL’s premier event to create a mass movement of people of faith preaching, teaching, and acting to heal the climate.
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 the climate crisis.
Sign up here to be the first to get the limited supply of pre-printed organizer’s kits.
The kit will include a Sacred Trust guide with information on intergenerational climate justice and the moral and legal rights of future generations to a livable climate. In the kit there are faith-based discussion materials, suggested short films, and a Youth and Children Blessing ceremony. 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.
Faith Climate Action Week 2022 offerings include resources for sermons, talks, worship services, a film screening kit for the featured film, Youth v Gov, and more.
