Preparation for COP

Our planet is seriously ill and we can feel the pain. We have been reminded of the many ways in which the future health of the Earth is under threat as a result of our selfishness, ignorance and greed. Our Earth needs attention, respect, love, care and prayer. Quaker faith and practice 25.02 (part)

Quaker concern for the Earth and well-being and all who live in it are not new. It is deeply rooted in our faith. We affirmed our commitment to act as a faith community in 2011 with a document called the ‘Canterbury Commitment’.

It is recognised that the environmental crisis is enmeshed with global economic injustice and that tackling inequality is central to taking action on climate change. The ‘Canterbury Commitment’ also makes clear that for Quakers this is a spiritual task.

The UK will host the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, in Glasgow from 1 – 12 November, 2021. The aim is to bring together world leaders to commit to urgent global climate action.

Leicester Quakers are using our Meeting House as a place where we can make known our love for the sacred earth in the face of the threat posed by the climate emergency.

What can you do?

Join us as individuals, families or faith communities in raising awareness of COP26.

We are asking the questions –

What do you treasure in the natural world?

What do you hope from COP26?

We invite you to share your pictures, poems, words, messages, slogans, collages or photos; we are calling this The Journey to COP26.

The journey starts with a window display on April 10th.

Please send us your response.

Something by email to leicesterquakers16@gmail.com or through the Meeting House letterbox by 29th March will be able to be put on display.
