Climate change is a justice issue. Those who have the least economic and political power, and the least responsibility for the changing climate, are affected the most. The UN warns that one climate crisis disaster is happening every week and that developing countries must prepare now for profound impact. Students across the globe are striking to demand climate action from their governments.
Many churches originally signed up to the Eco Church programme as a response to one of the most critical issues of our time. That's why A Rocha UK, in partnership with the Amos Trust, is organising a major conference on climate justice, 'Once in a Lifetime', from 23-24 September at St Paul's Church in Cambridge.
The two-day summit will explore how churches and Christians can play a greater role in addressing climate change with justice, to accelerate a 'just transition' to a low-carbon world. A Rocha UK CEO, Andy Atkins, who founded Tearfund's programme on Climate Change and Development, will be speaking on a Just Transition.
Suitable for A Rocha supporters, local Eco Church coordinators, community activists, experts, artists and theologians.
