The Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS) knows that climate change effects are felt locally and that decisions made at the local level impact climate policies. Our annual Sustainability Champion Awards highlight the people and organizations that have made significant contributions towards the FACS mission of creating moral and equitable solutions to climate change in Northern Virginia. Nominations are received from the community, and winners are chosen by a committee composed of FACS leadership and prior award winners.
2021’s theme, “Plan, Restore, Thrive,” weaves in FACS’ goal of creating sustainable and resilient communities for current and future generations.
The 2020 awards focused on a vision for sustainability over the next decade.
