- Katharine Hayhoe says that the first thing every single one of us can do about climate change is to talk about it – why it matters and what we can do to fix it. Do you think it is important to talk about climate change in your church? Can you think of ways that this could be done?
- What changes has your church already made, and what changes have you made as an individual, to reduce your carbon footprint? What else could you do at your church, to 'act in community' to help tackle climate change? Are there particular things that could be done to make your community aware that you are acting?
- Have you found any resources (organisations, authors, podcasts etc) that you can share to help others to reduce their carbon footprint? Are there ways that your church could facilitate sharing of information and resources for sustainable living?
- If you were to lead a church service on climate change, how would you do this?
Action to take
As a church, you could use the Climate Emergency Toolkit which will give your church or group a route map and resources to sound the alarm about the climate emergency and take urgent action.
