Uniting Climate Conference: Faith in a Better Future

Event description

Join us on Saturday May 11 for our Uniting Climate Conference – Faith in a Better Future

The Uniting Church has a long tradition of environmental concern and action.

The conference will bring Uniting Church and wider community members together in shared concern for a better future.

Why is it needed?

Australia has taken some positive steps recently, but we are still falling short of what is required to ensure a safe climate future for all.

Global warming is causing harm now with more serious threats in future.  It also presents an enormous opportunity to shift to a more sustainable world. How we respond will be decisive for which path we take.

We know the harmful impacts of extreme climate change are not shared equally. Those who have contributed least to the problem are often most vulnerable. We must address this.

What is the conference about?

The Faith in a Better Future conference is a chance to share mutual support and build common purpose in climate action. We’ll hear about the impacts global warming is already having, including for our Pasifika neighbours, First Nations peoples, those in rural areas, and our young people. But we won’t stop there.

Importantly, we’ll also focus on solutions and action. We’ll be informed about steps we need to take to ensure a safer climate future for all, and we’ll consider and decide how we can best contribute to those steps happening, individually and collectively. This work will shape our Uniting Climate advocacy strategy in the lead up to the next federal election.

The conference program

We are planning some exciting keynote speakers who we will announce soon. A panel of young climate activists will share what they do, why it matters and how they want us (the wider community) to act in support.

There will be separate but parallel workshops for face-to-face and online attendees. This is to provide fuller participation for our online community.

Topics will range from issues facing rural and regional communities, how climate change worsens social disadvantage, how to have effective climate conversations, the perspectives of Pacifika and First Nations peoples, the impacts of climate on health and more!

The conference will be held in Sydney for those who can attend in-person, but all keynote sessions will be streamed for online participants.

The full conference program will be available soon! Look out for it.

Please share this information with your friends, congregation and community members, and others who would be interested.
