Church leaders’ Easter statement on the environment
Dozens of church leaders in Australia, including UCA Assembly President Rev Sharon Hollis, have signed an open letter calling on our political leaders to take powerful action to preserve and protect God’s creation by:
- Halving carbon emissions this decade, in line with the recommendation of scientists and targets of our major trading partners;
- Transforming our energy system towards 100% renewable electricity while delivering a planned and just transition for energy workers; and
- Investing in programs to support communities on the frontlines to plan, prepare and adapt to the extreme weather events.
