Religious Actors and Climate Change: From Advocacy to Action

Casey, Shaun; Musser, Micah

This white paper by Shaun Casey and Micah Musser offers an overview of the past and current advocacy and sustainability efforts being led by religious actors, ranging from formal religious governing bodies to individual congregations. It also proposes future research efforts that might strengthen the ability of religious actors to move from general advocacy to advancing concrete climate policy and directly implementing/leading on-the-ground sustainability efforts.
