Register: For the Love of Creation Campaign

A lush forestFor the Love of Creation

For the Love of Creation’s faith-in-action campaign mobilizes people of faith across Canada to reduce household greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrate support for increased federal climate action.

This campaign is modelled on the Lenten campaign Give it up for the Earth!, run by Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) from 2017-2020.

The For the Love of Creation campaign begins on February 17, 2021 (Ash Wednesday) and will run until October 4, 2021 (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi and the end of the Season of Creation). It will also include a public witness event on April 22, Earth Day.

Now is the time to register as a local organizer for this campaign! Use the form below.

How it works:

Local organizers will bring the national campaign to their communities across Canada encouraging individuals to take action.

Individuals will commit to taking action to reduce their GHG emissions and/or engage in acts of solidarity with justice-seeking communities and write to federal Cabinet Ministers to call on the Government of Canada to:

  • Increase our national GHG emissions reduction target;
  • Invest in a just transition to a fair, inclusive, green economy;
  • Implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, including, but not limited to, the right of free, prior and informed consent; and
  • Commit equal support for climate change adaptation and mitigation measures in the Global South.

For the Love of Creation will provide electronic materials to local organizers on climate change and the policy asks of the campaign, personal action ideas and downloadable pledge cards, customizable online letters to Cabinet ministers, and resources to support the Earth Day public witness event.

Les ressources seront aussi disponibles en français.
