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.

The Green Rule poster is approximately 22" x 28".

 Saskatchewan Environmental Groups Collaborate on Webinar Series

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action (CIEA) collaborates with local groups to offer ‘Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities’ webinar series on Saskatchewan's response to climate change.

Communities Inspired for Environmental Action (CIEA), a chapter of the national charity, Faith & the Common Good, in partnership with other organizations in the Caring Sustainably for Saskatchewan Collaboration (CSSC) is launching an eleven-part webinar series on Saskatchewan's response to climate change. 

Entitled, ‘Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities,’ this webinar series was initially planned as a one-day event concerning Saskatchewan’s urgent need to reduce carbon emissions, but was changed to a webinar series when COVID-19 prevented gathering in large groups.  

“The webinar format allows us to invite speakers from outside Saskatoon, such as speakers from Saskatchewan's Ministry of Environment and PACE Canada,” says Carroll Chubb, CIEA Committee Member, and main organizer. “PACE financing is a way to finance building alterations to buildings that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” 

The series covers topics such as electricity generation, building retrofitting, electric vehicles, alternative fuels, urban planning, and farming. Webinar highlights include ‘Indigenous-led Renewable Energy Future in Saskatchewan,’ with speaker, Jenna Gall from First Nations Power Authority and of particular interest to faith groups, ‘The Role of Faith Communities in Climate Change,’ a panel discussion with guest speakers, Margret Asmuss from Climate Reality and Michelle Singh, Executive Director, Faith & the Common Good.

Response to Climate Change: Present Practices and Opportunities webinar series will be offered at noon, 12 pm CST (2 pm EDT, 11 am PDT, 3 pm ADT) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May 12 to June 11, 2020. 

The webinars will be in a Zoom meeting format.  Zoom participants must register in advance at

By watching the webinars, you can discover how Saskatchewan can shift to an economy with much lower greenhouse gas emissions,” says Chubb. “You can gain an understanding of the likely form of the new economy and the opportunities associated with it.”

“Packed with practical ways to evoke positive change in your own home, farm operation, business, modes of transportation, your faith community or wider community, wherever you are and whatever you do, there are actions that you can take on a daily basis backed by informed decisions to respond to climate change,” says CIEA co-chair, Myron Rogal.  “Building constructive conversations across polarized relationships is an indispensable step in restoring creation which we hope this series will lead us to practice.”
