CJC celebrates World Environment Day

This Shabbat is #worldenvironmentday and here at the CJC we’ve spent the week looking at our role in the environmental challenges we all face.

It’s been a busy week, these are just a few of the things we’ve been up to: Started our climate network with representatives from both small and large communities; including Canada, Zimbabwe, Gibraltar, UK, Jamaica and so many others!

We’ve had our first climate champions meeting with representatives from across the commonwealth. We listened to eachother’s challenges and started to think about some global campaigns. Watch. This. Space. Our women’s climate group has started with some amazing projects already being worked on.

Thinking about our involvement with #cop26 and meeting with the amazing #makecopcount group, to work on faith involvement at this crucial event. Check out our climate change manifesto here – have a look and let us know how you’d like to be involved!
