Ask our Government to keep its promise Take Action Turning paper promises into reality Our world is out of balance. People are being pushed further into poverty around the world because the climate is changing fast – there are more extreme droughts and floods, and less reliable rain. If we want to beat poverty and injustice, we need to tackle climate change. As global leaders return from the global climate talks (COP23), we remember the great steps forward we have taken around the world to tackle climate change and poverty. Governments made historic promises to tackle climate change through the Paris Agreement in 2015, and the church has an important role in turning this into action. This promise is only as good as its word. This year we are joining together with Christians around the world as part of the Renew Our World campaign, asking our global leaders not to miss the opportunity to turn their promises into real action. Join us this autumn by asking your MP to urge the UK Government to turn their paper promises into reality for those living in poverty.

As world leaders return from the global COP23 climate talks in Bonn, Germany, please will you urge Claire Perry MP, the UK Government Climate Minister to keep the promises the Government made in the Paris Agreement, to work with others towards significant progress to: Set targets for the world to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions fast enough to limit global warming to the safe level of 1.5 degrees. Invest in 100% clean energy, particularly using local renewable energy solutions like solar so it reaches those in poverty beyond the reach of national electricity grids. Support more sustainable, low emission agriculture, to stop communities going hungry, and help them to cope better with more floods and droughts caused by climate change. Publish national country plans by 2020 showing how each nation will move to zero emissions. As a Tearfund supporter I have joined the global Renew Our World campaign, calling on Christians to respond to the challenge of climate change by living more sustainably, praying, and raising our voices. Please will you support this movement for change by urging our Government to keep its promises.
