If we are serious about tackling poverty and improving lives, we need to be serious about climate change. Climate change ruins the work we do to fight poverty and help others flourish.
We have already made great strides in campaigning to tackle it. We need to make sure world leaders follow through with the promises they made in Paris (to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees centigrade) and make sure they go further.
We are inviting 30 campaigners to join our delegation to the UN climate summit in December.
As a CAFOD delegate, you will be travelling by coach 5-11 December to Katowice and Krakow Poland, where the climate talks will be held. This will be an opportunity to learn about the decision-making process, hear from other campaigners across Europe on living sustainably and campaigning on climate change, reflect on partner stories and bear witness with others for change.
Don’t worry if you’re not an expert, we will provide training before you go. And most importantly we’ll ask you to be a leader in taking action in your communities, so that we can protect communities overseas from climate change.
If you are interested then please read more about this opportunity and get in touch. Perhaps you know someone who might be free for this amazing opportunity, if so, then make sure they know about it.
