The UU Seventh Principle Project believes that a vision of ecospirituality is implicit in living the seventh of our UU principles--respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
In the Fall of 2000, the Seventh Principle Project launched the Green Sanctuary Program,
with "Founder's Churches" across the U.S. and Canada. Green Sanctuary
asks a church to engage in 17 actions over a candidacy year, organized
into six areas of church life:
To obtain recognition as a Green Sanctuary, a church must follow through on five steps, outlined on the Program Overview, and submit an application for accreditation at the end of the church year.
A church that undertakes to become a Green Sanctuary examines every area of church life--outreach, social concerns, religious education, buildings and grounds, social events, church communication and church administration--to see that its activities reflect respect for the interdependent web. It's walking the talk in a big way, and it gives the church a real sense of following through on its commitments in tangible, outwardly visible ways.
