What can Churches do for Climate Justice?
In the year that the UN climate talks ‘COP26’ come to Glasgow, there are many ways that churches and people of faith can contribute meaningfully to climate action – before, during and after. Join us to hear from inspirational campaigners from churches who have taken action on climate, how their faith inspires them, and find out how you can get involved in 2021.
Eco-Congregation Scotland is in partnership with Christian Aid, SCIAF and Tearfund for this Climate Fringe Live Event curated by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland.

The work Tearfund does in over 50 countries around the world tells a story of how people are impacted by the way that we live our lives here.
Join Less Waste Laura for ethical Christmas tips and cut your carbon footprint this Christmas.

Leading Christian international development charities have condemned UK Government plans to cut overseas aid from the pledged 0.7% of Gross National Income.
Christian Aid Scotland head and Eco-Congregation Scotland trustee Sally Foster-Fulton joined Rev Susan Brown, Church of Scotland Faith Impact Forum convener, in “Life and Work” to criticise the announcement by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
Hundreds of churches across the country are supporting Christian Aid this first Sunday of Advent, singing or sharing ‘When Out of Poverty is Born‘, with collective worship in hope and solidarity for the world’s poorest.
Please support our aid charities – and key partners of Eco-Congregation Scotland – in campaigning and praying for this vital support to continue, maintaining our global connections to address climate justice.
