The Green Awakening Network, an initiative of Toronto United Church Council, is a collaboration of over 50 United Churches, other faith communities and local environmental groups in the Toronto region.
Participants are responding to the challenge of climate change by encouraging lifestyle changes by their own members, reducing the carbon footprint of their buildings, and by becoming catalysts for action within the wider community.
