‘Hope in a Changing Climate’

April 15, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - April 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Across the UK and across the world, Christians are working to care for God’s earth and for each other.

  • How does the Paris Agreement give support to our efforts?
  • Does it re-ignite hope that the most dangerous climate change can be avoided?
  • What needs to happen to strengthen what was agreed?
  • And how can we, sustained and guided by our hope in Christ, work for a vision of a restored creation?

On the 15th and 16th of April, a group of agencies and churches, including A Rocha UK, All We Can, CAFOD, Christian Aid, CCOW, the Church of England, Commitment for Life,  Global Justice Now, Operation Noah, Progressio and Tearfund are putting on a conference called “Hope in a Changing Climate”  It will offer a chance to get updates on what happened in Paris, reflect on Christian responses, share ideas and experiences, and learn about ways in which we can act to make a difference. Speakers include Professor Myles Allen, Mohamed Adow, Jo Herbert, Bishop William Kenney, Rachel Lampard, George Marshall, Michael Northcott, Martin Poulsom, Rosaline Selby, Bishop Graham Usher and Ruth Valerio.

If you are interested in responding to climate change, this event is for you. We hope you’ll join us! Find out more and book at http://www.ewdc.uk or on Twitter at @ewdc2016.
