Wider Church Ecology Work
Report from Ecological Justice Working Group from Region 15:
How is our wider church helping to protect God’s creation? Watch a video of what some United Churches in the Maritimes have been doing.
What ideas does this give us? What else can we do?
Did you know:
The United Church of Canada has a new, ambitious policy to address the climate emergency! The whole church is committed to the goal of an 80% decrease in carbon emissions by 2030.
The United Church is committed to stronger advocacy at both the provincial and the national government levels for bold climate action. The church is continuing its disinvestment from fossil fuels. We want to strengthen our work with Indigenous communities, global partners, ecumenical organizations, and relationships with young people who have shown great moral climate leadership.
What steps do you propose we - our congregation - take to live up to our commitment as the United Church of Canada? Send your proposals for action to your church Council.
