CAFOD partners work with communities in Kenya so they can use solar panel energy to power schools, clinics and irrigation systems.

Join Southwark Justice and Peace and CAFOD in Saturday 18 October for an exciting day celebrating the launch of CAFOD’s One Climate, One World campaign.

One Climate One World – CAFOD campaign launch and Southwark Justice and Peace Autumn Assembly

Saturday 18 October 10:30am-4pm, Amigo Hall, St George’s Cathedral SE1 7YH

You’ll have a chance to hear directly from CAFOD’s Peruvian partners about how climate change has already started to affect their lives. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about how you can take action in the campaign in some of the following workshops:

Climate change: answering your tricky questions

Ask your tricky climate questions to Rob Elsworth, climate change expert from CAFOD’s policy team. Explore the facts, debunk the myths and build your confidence in speaking to others about climate change and CAFOD’s new campaign.

Gaining the livesimply parish award

Roger Wright from Petts Wood explains how his parish has embarked on a journey to live more simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the poor, what this meant for them and how your parish could apply for a livesimply parish award.

The Theology of Climate Change

What does campaigning on climate change have to do with loving your neighbour? How does our faith underpin our response to climate change? Reflect on these questions and more and explore some of the riches of Catholic teaching on care for creation and our neighbours. (Speaker to be confirmed).

Involving young people in campaigning

Learn how to motivate the next generation of campaigners to act for a better world. We’ll be sharing ideas, resources and fun activities to get your parish’s youth or confirmation group involved in campaigning for justice.
