As the Season of Creation begins Green Christian is launching Why Faith Matters at COP26, a lively visual presentation highlighting the four main areas which we feel COP decision-makers need to address:
- our interconnectedness with nature;
- the importance of climate justice to protect the vulnerable;
- the potential for wellbeing without ever-increasing consumption;
- the significance of hope if change is to be achieved.
