This is an Emergency!
On 1 May 2019 a national climate and environmental emergency was declared in the UK Parliament. Green Christian is calling on church denominations and their governing bodies to play their part.
The age of growth economics is over. If we try and carry on, our legacy to the next generation will be a ruined planet, inescapable debt and brutal inequality. There is an alternative. Joy in Enough
Green Christian invites people to join in the journey.
Mini Campaigns – Write some letters
- Green Christian is writing letters about Water Use to House Builders and/or District Councils to encourage them to reduce the use of water
- Green Christian is supporting the ‘Hope for the Future’ campaign. Have members from your church written to their parliamentary candidates yet?
- your local garden centre about preventing Ash Dieback
- your local supermarket about overheating their store
Our food campaign encourages people to use foods which are Local, Organic, Animal friendly and Fairly traded. There are many resources to support this campaign on our LOAF page.
On climate change we also work with our sister organisation Operation Noah which was started by Green Christian.
