We are hoping to see many Church people in the faith contingent at the People’s Climate March this Sunday November 29 2015 starting at Wellington Square at 1pm. Wear PURPLE and bring
your posters and Church banners! This is an invitation to be part of a history making, world wide movement of people who are working for a safe environmental future for all of us, now and in the future.
Climate change is already proving a challenge to people and ecosystems around the world. The Uniting Church has heard the calls to action on climate change from our partners in the Pacific who are already experiencing its impacts. Yet the threat is proving to be not so distant. Western Australia is particularly exposed to changes in climate with noticeable impacts already being felt in our agricultural sector and urban water supply. The unique and vulnerable flora and fauna species of the South West are also at particular risk unless strong international action is taken to reduce carbon emissions and keep global warming within reasonable limits. With this in mind:
The Social Justice Board invites you to participate in a symbolic action appealing for adequate emissions reduction targets at the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris.
