(ROEAB Press Release, Jan. 5, 2015)

The Royal Oak Environmental Advisory Board (ROEAB) is pleased to co-sponsor a Building Green Bridges workshop for anyone interested in beginning or enhancing an environmental sustainability program at their congregation.

ROEAB, together with the Birmingham Unitarian Church, has lined up some exciting speakers to address participants. The workshop also includes an interdenominational panel discussion, which waterworkwill touch on what some congregations have accomplished, share what works well and discuss challenges or snags each faith group may have encountered in creating their own sustainability program.

A simple lunch of soup and sandwiches is included for $10.

Participants are encouraged to network with attendees from other faiths in our community. The hope is to create green bridges between congregations, share information and provide support on environmental issues.
