Journey to COP26 – Saturday 10th April 2021, happening wherever you are!

In the lead up to the UN Climate talks to be held in Glasgow in November, Quakers in Britain, part of the Christian faith community, have invited people of all faith communities and none to:

‘Join together remotely and share our belief in the sacredness of all life, ahead of the UN climate talks, COP26

This is a crucial time for building the movement for climate justice. People in Britain and beyond want radical action to prevent climate breakdown – and we must make sure that the UK government knows that.

We are a group of Quakers calling on all concerned communities in the UK, including people of other faiths and people of no faith, to join us on our journey of awareness, understanding and action ahead of the climate talks.

On Saturday 10th April, we invite you to participate in a celebration of our environment by making a short journey to any place that is sacred to you.  Numbers participating within your faith community are obviously dependent on Covid restrictions by then, see https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Members of Cornwall Faith Forum are hoping to walk from Kenwyn, Truro, to the Dor Kemmyn Peace Field at Penmount. Meet at 10.30 am at Kenwyn Church, Truro.   We will be adhering to Covid restrictions.  Please register for this walk.  (see sheet Journey to COP26 10 April 2021 – Information FINAL for further information)*.

This action is a way for us to strengthen our collective sense of purpose in protecting the Earth and all its inhabitants.”
