Green Corner: Becoming Climate Champions in CNY

Article by Kip Coerper, organist and choirmaster for St. James’ Episcopal Church in Skaneateles and 2021 GreenFaith Fellow. He will offer reflections on climate justice and caring for God’s creation in this space in the months ahead. 

How do we care for God’s creation to leave it better than we found it? Do you recycle? Reuse? Drive an efficient vehicle? Use public transportation when possible? Have you had an energy audit done on your home? Do you eat sustainably produced food? This month’s “Green Corner” article will share ways we, in CNY, can address cleaning our environment and become climate champions.

To go deeper with Twelve Steps to Sustainable Communities and many of the suggestions above, view a recording our October 12th “Creating Sustainable Communities” event at cnyepiscopal.org/2021/10/recording-caring-for-gods-creation-creating-sustainable-communities. Local experts offered practical resources for creating sustainable, climate-change-responsive communities in Central New York. Presenters included Peter Arsenault (Greening USA of Syracuse), Frank Moses (Skaneateles Lake Association), Chris Carrick (CNY Regional Development Commission), and Ben Coerper (Wild Harmony Farm).
