Our commitment

‘The action we are ready to take at this time is to make a strong corporate commitment to become a low-carbon, sustainable community.’
Yearly Meeting Gathering 2011, Minute 36

At Yearly Meeting Gathering 2011 Quakers in Britain made a corporate commitment to become a low-carbon, sustainable community.

The Sustainability and Peace programme drives, facilitates and supports action to live out this commitment. It helps Quakers and others to live more sustainable lives and to explore the connections between sustainability, economics and peace.

We also seek to influence governments and others in order to help transform Britain into a more sustainable society. We have opportunities for 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.
