CAFOD Campaigners at climate talks in Paris 2015

If we are serious about tackling poverty and improving lives, we need to be serious about climate change. We have already made great strides in campaigning to tackle it. During our One Climate, One World campaign in 2015, campaigners encouraged world leaders to sign the ground-breaking Paris Climate Agreement. This agreement commits countries to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees, ideally 1.5 degrees. We now need to make sure world leaders follow through with the promises they’ve made in Paris, and make sure they go further, and faster when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

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.

When you return, we’ll ask you to share your experience with your parish or community through talks, blogs and local media. 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.
