You are invited to participate in a conversation about your climate concerns with your Federal MP, some time between now and the next Federal election.
What this is about
The Uniting Church has been committed to care for the environment (God’s good creation) since its beginning in 1977. And not just the church as a whole, the vast majority of Uniting Church members (81 per cent), see care for creation as an essential part of mission. That care involves not just personal actions like reducing waste, recycling, or joining the local bush care group. It includes applying our faith convictions to the big issues of the day- like climate change and seeking to shape the policies of our whole state and nation.
That’s why the Uniting Climate Action Network (UCAN) is encouraging Uniting Church members to have Climate Conversations with their Federal MP, before the next election. Ideally, a group of Uniting Church members would be involved in each electorate, so you can support each other. Conversations could be via a meeting with your MP, a candidates’ forum or other gathering. You could organise conversations with other likeminded churches, groups or members of your community.
The Uniting Advocacy Team will offer resources, support and training to help you. But at its core this is simply about Uniting Church members speaking up about why action on climate matters to them and what they want to see our next Federal government do about it (regardless of who that is).
If this interests you, we would love to see you at our on-line gathering where we will explain more.
