This webinar will introduce The Sustainability Education and Energy Knowledge-sharing (SEEK) Project, an action research project of the Spirituality and Sustainability Initiative at ASU, and demonstrate the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® for Congregations program.
Both programs are designed for congregations, but can be used by any community seeking a framework and tools to help accelerate their energy transitions. SEEK uses a novel model for leveraging existing assets and in-kind resources from multi-sectoral partners (universities, congregations, commercial energy professionals, federal programs and local leaders) The EPA’s ENERGY STAR® for Congregations program has assets that also can be used across communities. Its free online tools, training and technical services are designed to support energy and water stewardship in worship facilities but apply to any facility.
Webinar participants view methods to measure their individual and collective impacts on energy usage, migration to renewable energy products and services, greenhouse gas emissions, energy expenditures, and reinvestment of cost savings into social service.
