Join the climate justice year of learning
22 June 2022 by Paul Parker
The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October–12 November 2021.
There was a huge amount of inspiring and creative action from Quakers around Britain in the run up to and during COP26! We heard from Friends in almost every part of the country who organised and supported a wide range of activity, including meetings for worship and vigils, marches and rallies, banner drops, festivals, educational events and interfaith community building.
Staff from Quakers in Britain were in Glasgow throughout COP26. We worked both inside and outside the conference to push for governments of rich countries to commit to a loss and damage fund for countries already impacted by climate change. We also supported Quaker and interfaith action on a range of climate justice issues.
The easiest way to find out about Quakers in Britain work on climate justice, is to sign up to the mailing list for Quaker Faith in Action and tick the box for climate justice.
We know many Quakers took action for the UN climate talks – COP26 – last year and you will be continuing to take action against climate breakdown this year. To celebrate this and help connect you, we have now launched our database sharing information about Quaker climate action around the UK!
