Climate Justice Event
Please pray for a special event the charity is co-hosting with Southampton University on Monday 25th September. With our guests from Melanesia, the charity is raising awareness of climate change in the pacific.

The Most Revd George Takeli, Archbishop of Melanesia, is calling for urgent action to help tackle the crisis unfolding in the Solomon Islands: “I have come to the UK to share the plight of people in the pacific suffering from the impact of climate change. Many are having to abandon their homes, villages and islands due to increasing sea levels, unpredictable weather patterns and increased air temperature."
 
Many communities are struggling to adapt to these changes, with limited relocation options, resources or support. As a region with a relatively low carbon footprint, we seem to be paying a heavy price for rest of the world’s over development and wastefulness.

As stewards of God’s creation, there are many ways we can protect this amazing world that has been given to us all. If you feel called to make a difference this Creationtide, you may find the following links / resources useful;
