How can churches and other religious groups respond to the climate emergency?
In 2015, concern about single use plastic was hitting the headlines, as was the wider danger of not engaging with the climate emergency. The Pope had just published a major work on care for our common home, and, as a parish we were wondering how best to engage in the challenge. A group formed and devised a series of themed leaflets, and ran an information campaign. We surveyed the parish after the campaign and used the results to inform our online campaign including website resources, links and weekly Facebook tips. We’d like to share our experience and resources. We think they’re great, but massively underused. And, we’d like your ideas!
