Climate Action Now!

Our world is at a crossroads. We can choose to halt the climate emergency...or not.

Renew Our World are delighted to announce the launch of our climate global moment 2019!

The growing emergency is the defining issue of our time and now is the defining moment to do something about it. There is still time to tackle climate change, but it will require an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society.

We don’t want to see communities pushed back into poverty. We don’t want to see growing instability in climate-vulnerable parts of the world. We believe God’s heart for justice requires us to act now.

We want our governments to step up and announce new climate pledges and bold national climate plans at the UN Climate Summit. We know God can bring hope to hopeless situations. Let’s bring hope by speaking together in one bold voice, praying and taking action.

We know that God is on the move, renewing our world, and wants us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Will you join us?

Here is how you can take action and join our global moment.
