As Quakers, we understand climate change to be a symptom of a greater challenge: how to live sustainably and justly on this earth. In 2011 Quakers in Britain made a corporate commitment to become a low-carbon, sustainable community and we support each other to live out this commitment.

    How we work

    We help Quakers and others to live more sustainable lives and to explore the connections between sustainability, economics and peace.

    We also seek to influence governments, corporations and other institutions in order to help transform Britain into a more sustainable society. We have opportunities for you and your meeting to call for political change for sustainability.

    The Sustainability and Peace programme works closely with the Economic Issues programme which promotes a more equitable and environmentally responsible economy.

    Climate justice

    Quakers are calling for climate justice. We want justice for those who have been unequally impacted by climate change and a global climate commitment that stops this injustice continuing. We are working to build an energy and economic system that has equality, justice and sustainability at heart. Read our Through Paris briefing (PDF).
