We are raising our voices as world leaders gather for the UN climate talks, COP26, to urge them to take transformative action to end the climate crisis.
People living in poverty are already suffering due to increasingly frequent extreme weather events which are devastating their communities. We are now on course for catastrophic global temperature rises which will put millions more lives at risk. But it’s not too late to change this.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to see Christians and churches lead the way in standing up for justice for our global neighbours? We’ve seen time and time again that when we raise our voices together, decision-makers take action and situations can change for people in poverty. Why not gather some of your friends and join the march together?
