The Dubuque Chapter received an award from Iowa Interfaith Power & Light for their fantastic first year of success!

The Dubuque Chapter held a Green Team training that drew 80 participants! They designed their own assessment of how green their congregations are and could be, and are drilling down on waste reduction through their reusable bag campaign. They’ve hosted speakers, tabled at events, and been invited to local talk shows.

Member congregations have been inspired to swap out lightbulbs for LEDs, educate themselves on the benefits of living simply, grow food for the needy, and work to reduce their congregation’s energy use.

Many of the Dubuque Chapter congregations are Iowa IPL Covenanting Congregations that indicates a greater level of commitment to the mission of Iowa IPL.

Thank you to the Dubuque Chapter for being a shining example of inspiring and equipping people of faith in becoming leaders in pursuing solutions to climate change!
