The Regeneration Project (TRP) committed to enlist 1,000 new congregations in the U.S. to cut greenhouse gas emissions and to launch two new state programs in 2006. These congregations will take action to reduce climate change by: 1) installing solar panels on their roofs; 2) converting to energy efficient appliances; 3) purchasing green energy or Renewable Energy Certificates; 4) delivering a sermon on global warming; 5) holding educational forums; and/or 6) distributing literature about global warming to congregants. This process aspires to reach 500,000 people. All meetings and conferences will be climate neutral.
The Regeneration Project's ministry has already begun the Interfaith Power and Light Program and has affiliates in 17 states, including Washington, D.C. TRP will magnify its efforts to educate and inspire people of all faiths to use energy efficient products, to conserve, and to use clean, renewable energy wherever possible. TRP will make certain that caring for Creation becomes a top priority for religious observers already committed to justice, peace, and love. Because climate change presents the greatest threat to the Earth faced by the faith community, TRP will do all in its power as a religious organization to persuade others to activate their beliefs. The organization intends to lead by example.
