What We Do
Launched in the fall of 2016 by a gift from Ray Martin (read more about the launch here), CSCS advances thinking and action in Anabaptist and other faith communities to mitigate climate change. We envision Anabaptists fully engaged in actions which mitigate climate change, and Anabaptist perspectives influencing the larger climate conversation. We envision the church responding to climate change as a moral equivalent to peacebuilding.
The Center’s primary areas of engagement are in 1) resourcing student leaders/campus advocacy groups, 2) equipping pastors and congregational leaders, 3) researching best practices and innovative solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts, and 4) motivating communities through stories and perspectives of those most affected by climate change, and who suffer climate injustice.
