Eco-Justice Immersion Experience 2011
August 27-September 1, 2011 -- Seattle, Washington

Apply to participate in a new pilot project initiative of leadership and advocacy training around themes of sustainable economy, climate justice, eco-theology, and our spiritual and physical ties to the life that surrounds us. Selected participants will spend six days interfacing with national and regional leaders from both the faith and non-profit worlds, hiking in some of this nation’s most beautiful country, and putting their hands and heads to work advocating for eco-justice.
The event offers an incredible opportunity to:

  • discuss and learn about a range of issues connecting Christian faith with care and justice for all creation,
  • learn about Episcopal Church polity and policy,
  • learn how the church participates in advocacy,
  • develop skills and knowledge to use in dioceses, churches, and communities around the country, and
  • develop relationships to encourage your interest in this area of ministry.

Women and men ages 18 to 30 throughout the Episcopal Church are invited to apply for this exciting opportunity. Only 20 individuals will be selected to participate due to funding and logistics constraints in this pilot year. Selected participants will be expected to arrive for dinner on Saturday, August 27, 2011 and should plan to depart after breakfast on Thursday, September 1, 2011. All local costs are covered; participants are responsible for their own transportation costs.
Applications are due June 15, so don't delay!
Questions and completed applications can be sent to Jason Sierra (jsierra@episcopalchurch.org) and/or Mike Schut (mschut@episcopalchurch.org).
