Faith & the Common Good supports our network members to work collectively to raise awareness and encourage action to ensure that all, including future generations, have access to clean water, clean air and toxic-free living environments.

Climate Justice & Indigenous Allyship

Faith & the Common Good’s 2016 Annual Forum brought together a dozen speakers from Canadian Indigenous and settler backgrounds to address allyship, climate justice, and the interfaith response. The all-day forum was held at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON. Thanks to Divest Waterloo for co-ordinating the event. This video recording contains bookmarks for each of the speakers.

The Green Rule Poster

The Green Rule

Faith & the Common Good derived the Green Rule poster from the classic Golden Rule found in major faith traditions.

“Do unto the Earth as you would have it do unto you.”

Each Green Rule was chosen from the great texts of the world’s major religions and spiritual philosophies. The texts all acknowledge the natural world as an essential phenomenon through which we may better come to know the divine and our oneness with it.

Order the Green Rule Poster ($15 folded; $20 rolled ON/QC; $25 Canada)

For bulk sales and international orders, email resources@faithcommongood.org to ask for a quote *before* placing order.
