Event description

Description

How can communities of faith stand up for a more compassionate and responsible future? The Church Climate Network will explore how the teachings of Jesus to love our neighbour and to care for the earth should shape our response to climate change in New Zealand.

In addition, come and learn about the Generation Zero's Zero Carbon Act, the opportunity we have to transition to a zero carbon society by 2050, and ways that you can be a part of the change!

Youth climate organisation Generation Zero created a blueprint for a Zero Carbon Act, a proposed law to get New Zealand on track to zero carbon emissions by 2050, based on the successful UK Climate Change Act. The new government has committed to adopting the Act, but now it's up to us to that they follow through and that it gets cross-party support.

Getting to zero carbon by 2050 is an ambitious goal that our country will be working towards together. This gathering will explore the role of Christians in this transition, including:

  • what a Christian response to climate change can look like

  • the impacts of climate change on our neighbors in Asia-Pacific

  • an introduction to the Zero Carbon Act and what we need to do to get it across the line

  • ways to share the message of creation care with your church community, and to take action yourself.
