Union Theological Seminary Climate Emergency Community Assembly
Apr 22 to Apr 23
Earth Week: April 22nd and 23rd, 2021 / 2:00-4:30 pm
Union Theological Seminary has recently declared a climate emergency, being the first seminary in the world to do so. The declaration commits Union to adopting a climate mobilization plan with the goal of eliminating our school’s carbon emissions in the next ten years. The plan will recommend changes to Union’s facilities, curriculum, and community engagement.
Union has committed to a democratic process for creating the plan, which will take the form of a Community Assembly on April 22nd and 23rd. The Community Assembly will consist of 15 students, 5 faculty, 5 staff, and 5 alums.
Attached is a copy of the Emergency Declaration, the Assembly Itinerary, and a Google Form if you are interested in participating. All students should have also gotten an email with a slightly more robust explanation and access to all the links as well.
