Climate Resilience Program

NYC religious communities are on the front lines of the climate emergency, often the primary contact for advice and services. In 2022, NYDIS launched a “Climate Resilience Program” for NYC clergy and religious lay leaders serving under-resourced, climate vulnerable communities. The program features climate resilience resources, networking events, trainings, and vulnerability analyses to help NYC clergy and lay leaders make effective plans, harden facilities, and answer tangible questions for climate vulnerable stakeholders.
