For Environmental Concerns Committees

If you are part of a group that works on environmental concerns, earthcare or peace and social concerns, this is how QEW can help you:

1. Quaker-specific educational resources

We have Quaker-specific educational resources on environmental concerns that you can share with your meeting or church:

Talking about Climate Change: A Practical Guide

Contemplative Action in the Time of Climate Change

And much more: pamphlets, videos, essays, and curricula on a range of topics of interest.

2. Mini-Grants

We offer small grants to help fund your community’s environmental projects.

3. Workshops

We visit faith communities across North America through our QEW Presents! speakers series, either online or in person. Invite us to yours or join one of our already scheduled online events.
