UCA assembly statement on climate justice and care of creation
The 16th Assembly of the Uniting Church has just passed a statement to take seriously the voices and wisdom of First Peoples on climate justice and care of creation by committing to net zero emissions by 2040.
Climate Action Moreland has done an assessment of the published climate, environment and energy policies of the political parties and candidates standing in the Wills electorate for 2022 and whether they are consistent with the science of climate change and the speed of transition required, and meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement. If you are in another electorate see this Guide on Voting Climate from Vote Earth Now (friends and partners include School Strike for Climateand Together We Can).
Church kids and families meeting with Peter Khalil 15/5
A meeting of church kids and families in the Will’s electorate with Peter Khalil – specifically to express their concerns about climate change will happen next Sunday May 15th at 12.15pm, at St John’s West Brunswick, corner of Melville Rd and Victoria St.
We hope to have young people from a variety of churches in Wills share their concerns via artwork, posters, banners, or other forms of expression. We’d like to send Peter home with some of this artwork to help him remember the concerns of young people of Wills faith communities.
The action is being organised by the Christians Together for Climate (Wills) group – part of a national campaign led by TEAR and Common Grace. If you’d like to bring along kids or grandkids, or contribute artwork or other expressions of concern, let Kath Williams know, or just turn up on the day.
