Earth Day 2008: Something We Can All Believe In


In coordination with the National Council of Churches, the Religious
Coalition on Creation Care and other inter-faith organizations, EDN
will integrate faith based Earth Day observances into nation wide
Earth Day 2008 actions. Our goal is to activate 500,000 parishioners
in areas of the country that have not responded to the climate crises
in support of climate legislation that invests in renewable energy and
the creation of green jobs and helps low-income Americans transition
to the new green economy.

On Earth Day 2007, EDN was successful in creating 12,000 sermons
and religious events through outreach to leaders from the Jewish,
Muslim, and Christian faiths. EDN created the 2007 Global Warming
in the Pulpit Pledge as a way to engage national faith leaders and
local clergy to deliver a sermon on climate change the weekend of
Earth Day, April 20-22, or to commit to preaching a sermon on
climate change one day during the year. Thousands of ministers,
rabbis, and other religious leaders throughout the U.S. and Canada
responded by pledging a deliver a sermon on climate change to their
congregations. We also created the first Earth Day Sunday at the
Washington National Cathedral, which was televised and which
included Reverend Richard Cizik, a leader in the Evangelical Church,
and other religious leaders.
