Faithful Green Leaders Training - Build, Inspire and Transform your community. Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake invites you a free one-day workshop. It’s free, it’s fun, and it will help you lead your congregation to take meaningful environmental action! Learn and network with other congregational Green Teams, and gain communication skills, develop an action plan, learn how to apply for grants to support projects-and more. Green Teams work best with at least three people, so you must have at least three from your congregation in order to attend. Teams will attend one, in-person workshop and monthly webinars (recorded to fit your schedule). Don’t have a team of 3 yet? Contact us for tips on how to get your core group together in time to attend a training.
