Thank you SO MUCH to the hundreds of people who joined Southwell’s COP26 ClimateMarch today. It is as important for us to meet and share concerns, ideas and actions as it is to highlight them to others.
We kicked off the march with an excerpt from church leaders’ joint statement on #climatechange, so for those who couldn’t make it, or couldn’t hear it (it was a larger crowd than expected!):
We called as a group for climatejustice, no more blahblahblah. We need to cut our pollution as individuals and as a nation; and we need to protect those who are already exposed to devastating climate shocks.
The March was themed as listening to the leaves, reflecting Southwell’s Minster rare position as a rural cathedral, recognising that we are already seeing the impacts of climate change, and reminding ourselves of the need to listen to each other in the transition to end greenhouse gas emissions.
