Get involved

Quakers around the world are calling on governments to commit to essential climate targets and to place justice at the heart of solutions to climate breakdown, and protect life on earth. There are many ways to support climate action at the UN climate talks. Here are some links to ways you can get involved with Quakers worldwide:

Protecting God’s Creation: join Quakers around the world in climate action
A joint project between FWCC and Britain Yearly Meeting that links Quakers around the world to correspond as pen pals and share their experiences of the climate emergency and strengthen Quakers’ call for climate justice action in the run up to and beyond the UN climate talks, COP26.

Loving Earth project
A creative project that was started by a small group of Quakers and is open to everyone. It celebrates people, places, creatures and other things that we love but which are threatened by growing environmental breakdown.

Spiritual preparation for COP26
Woodbrooke and Quakers in Britain are working in partnership to run monthly sessions to build a community of witness, reflect on what we can do and nurture our spiritual resilience and resistance to climate breakdown.
