CPJ Delivers Climate Petitions to Minister McKenna

March 2, 2016 marked a turning point for federal-provincial cooperation on climate policy in Canada.

Federal and provincial leaders, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis representatives, and a wide range of civil society organizations are gathering in Vancouver to discuss the future of climate change policy in Canada.

After the Paris Agreement

Canadians prayed for 296 consecutive hours during Paris climate negotiations. Concerned kids, parents, farmers, musicians, scientists, grandmothers, ministers, national churches, and friends, all across Canada (and beyond!) participated.

A Better Future for Our Children

Last winter, my nine-year-old son accompanied me to a climate talk at our church. But rather than bored, Oscar was captivated and took to writing about climate change, flooding and drought, and the significant oil and gas reserves that must stay underground. 

Then I began to worry. How much did he understand about what the world might look like when he’s my age? And did he (as I do) have faith that we could muster the ambition necessary to take action?

5 People Who Are Praying for COP21 in Paris

In the lead up to COP21, CPJ launched Prayers for COP21 in Paris, a suite of worship materials, advocacy tools, and nation-wide prayer chain designed to help people of faith engage with climate justice.

Beyond Greening

Climate Justice Requires Christian Advocacy

Climate change is already negatively impacting physical, biological, and human systems around the world. That we allow further greenhouse gas emissions is an injustice – especially since  those most vulnerable to climate change are already socially and economically marginalized.

Divestment and Election 2015

The movement to divest from fossil fuels and invest in renewable energy and climate solutions has exploded, growing fifty-fold in the past year. To date, 430 institutions and 2,040 individuals across 43 countries and representing $2.6 trillion in assets have committed to divest from fossil fuel companies.

Faith communities cannot, in good conscience, be strong advocates for addressing climate change while continuing to profit from fossil fuel companies.

Degrees of Justice

The climate we experience results from complex chemical, physical, and biological processes that interact with complicated social and political structures. As creatures and citizens of both ecological and political societies, our impact extends to all organisms with whom we share the safe harbor of Earth’s climate.

Climate change is a tragically urgent public justice issue that requires immediate action.
