As Canadians, we are part of the problem of climate change. As people of faith, we can be part of the solution. God calls us to love and care for all the Earth. To respond to the human and ecological devastation of climate change with love and justice.
For the Love of Creation‘s faith-in-action campaign mobilizes people across Canada to reduce household greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and demonstrate support for increased federal climate action.
The campaign runs from February 17 (Ash Wednesday) to October 4, 2021 (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi and the end of the Season of Creation).
Join the campaign by making a personal pledge to reduce your GHG emissions and engage in acts of solidarity with justice-seeking communities. Next, share your pledge and write to federal Cabinet Ministers, calling on them to commit the Government of Canada to.
3 steps you can take towards climate justice:
- Register as an organizer for For the Love of Creation’s faith-in-action campaign, and bring the national campaign to your faith community and encourage individuals to take action..
- Reduce your GHG emissions using 9 ideas from CPJ as well as Greening Sacred Spaces and the Carbon Footprint calculator.
- CPJ has set up a online action in partnership with the CRC's Centre for Public Dialogue. Urge your MP to support increased climate ambition and clean energy policies! As an expression of love for God’s awesome creation, tell your MP that you, as a person of faith, want meaningful climate action – consistent with the principles of the Paris Agreement – to reduce GHG emissions and address climate change.
