‘The destruction of the planet has begun through our over-exploitation of our lands and seas. These are not times for blame and accusation. There is a task ahead of all of us to address the outcomes of our avarice and sloth.’ Patrick Dodson, Yawuru man
On Saturday 30th July, 2022 representatives of some of the churches of Brunswick met for the first time at the Brunswick Uniting Church on Sydney Road. It was agreed that our initial purpose is to inform the faith community and the wider local community about COP27 and encourage the Australian Government to commit to bold action to prevent global warming.
The Conference of Parties 27(COP27) will be held in Egypt from 6th -18th November, 2022. Representatives from over 40 countries will work to implement the Paris Agreement i.e. to limit the increase of the global temperature to 1.5 degC and ensure global temperature does not exceed 2 degC.
