How to take action on climate

The world is out of balance. The changing climate is harming our communities, and the poorest people are hit first and hardest by environmental disasters.

We are being hit with more floods, more droughts, and more extreme weather — and for many people that means less to eat and communities pushed into poverty.

Our generation are the only ones with an opportunity to act — because time is short. This responsibility belongs to us.

Will you join us? Together we can rise to meet God’s call to love our neighbours, care for creation, and build a just and sustainable world for everyone.

What are we asking for?

In 2015, 195 countries signed the historic Paris Climate Agreement. Our world came together and agreed to halt global warming at 1.5 degrees to limit the damage, and to transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

We are calling on our elected leaders to live up to their agreement in these ways:

– agree fair, robust and transparent rules to implement the Paris agreement

– produce national country plans by 2020 with stronger targets and faster cuts in greenhouse gas emissions

– deliver and scale up the promised $100bn for the most vulnerable countries to tackle and adapt to climate change, including for sustainable and resilient smallholder agriculture and clean energy.

 

What can I do?

Join us and take action. Renew Our World is a worldwide movement of people like you, doing justice as we follow Jesus. We are a global community passionate about loving our neighbours and taking action on the world’s biggest challenges: to beat poverty, injustice, and climate change.

We believe the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and environmental sustainability are the defining issues of our generation, and our response to them should guide how we live, how we vote, what we buy and how we pray. In our prayers and actions, we are voices for justice and God’s love.
