  1. How do we organize ourselves to get a carbon footprint assessment started in our conference or episcopal area?
  2. Which calculators or tools are best for us to use?
  3. Who should be involved in our office/program?
  4. What assistance is available from the Bishops’ Project on God’s Renewed Creation by telecom or in person?
  5. What do we do with the footprint assessment once it’s calculated?
  6. How can we reduce or offset our footprint once it’s measured?
  7. How can we get a “Green Team” or Creation Caretakers group going in our conference or episcopal Area?

Contact Project Manager Pat Callbeck Harper at pharper@umc-gbcs.org to get started.  The Council of Bishops will be examining the results of our carbon footprint assessments and reports at their May 2011 Meeting.  That’s our deadline for this “illuminating” and significant exercise.  Blessings.
