One Climate, One World
One Climate, One World is CAFOD’s new climate campaign
Judith Allinson writes: “I had the privilege to take part in a local event this week at Settle, North Yorkshire.”
“One Climate, One World” was the message of Ben Oldham of CAFOD, the guest speaker at Churches Together in Settle and District’s “One World Week” Meal on Thursday 23 Oct.
Over 50 people met in the newly refurbished Catholic church hall in Settle and shared a meal made almost entirely of local produce – vegetable casserole and shepherds pie and bread rolls.
Ben Oldham, showed a short film of how changing climate is making rains less predictable in Kenya and how CAFOD is helping people on farms there.
Many of the people signed pledges to show how they would reduce their carbon emissions.

If you are involved with Churches Together and especially if you are involved with a Catholic Church or Catholic School, do support One Climate, One World .. write a pledge to show how you are going to reduce your carbon emissions.
There are lots of useful resources e.g list of quotes and sources that could be used in a parish magazine. .. and lots more. Do go and have a look.
And do contact your local MP to tell about your concerns.
