BUC and the Climate Crisis2022-11-15T20:14:30+11:00
On 24 November 2019, Brunswick Uniting Church declared a “Climate Crisis”. In 2020, we adopted a Climate Crisis Action Plan.
These steps build on our longstanding commitment to environmental action. We are also an active member of ARRCC.

Besides our collective action, BUC households are taking action for Climate Justice.
