The things we love are threatened by climate change – but we can protect them by urging politicians to act.
2015 is a very important year for the Church and the wider world with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (post Millennium Development Goals) being launched in September and the key UN Climate Change talks in Paris in December and Pope Francis’ long awaited encyclical on integral development and creation due to be released possibly this summer. CAFOD is working hard to ensure 2015 is a success for our brothers and sisters in the global south and that the deals reached can lead to a world were all people can flourish and live life to the full and where creation is protected for future generations around the world.
On June 17th, join thousands of people for a day of action and celebration as we speak to our MPs and tell them why fighting climate change matters to us.
CAFOD Plymouth and the Climate Coalition have arranged subsidised transport to London via train from Cornwall and Devon, and from Dorset by coach.
There’ll be workshops, music, entertainment and a rally finale – bring your friends to speak up for the things you love that could be lost to climate change!
This will be the biggest ever UK MP climate lobby, and the first mass lobby of the new government. Let’s not lose what we love to climate change, just because no one knew we cared.
Together we can witness to new government how much we care for our brothers and sisters around the world and our concern that Climate Change is pushing them deeper into poverty. Please do pray and reflect on whether you can join CAFOD to add your voice at this crucial lobby and ensure that our MPs hear and take action to protect our sisters and brothers in the global south. Please feel free to encourage your family and friends to come and join us.
