Let’s talk about the Climate Emergency: news from Eco Congregation Scotland

by | Aug 27, 2020 | News and reports

As Scotland comes into the spotlight hosting COP 26, due in November 2021, it becomes imperative that Scotland’s churches join the conversation and take action on the Climate Emergency.

One of the most powerful ways we can encourage change is in talking, listening and telling our stories. Eco-Congregation Scotland has produced Let’s Talk about the Climate Emergency, a pack of resources to help congregations hold a series of awareness raising conversations about the Climate Emergency and to encourage everyone to take action.

Throughout August the focus has been on “Sharing the things you have”. 

Tools and gadgets. We seem to be obsessed with them. Have you any of the following items sitting in a cupboard, shed or garage at home?- steam wallpaper stripper, powerwasher, long ladder, tree loppers, sewing machine, steam cleaner. If you do, how often do you use them?

Do they sit on the shelf for most of the year? All these tools have a cost to the planet to produce – they contain mineral resources, and the manufacturing processes have a cost in terms of the amount of carbon produced in making the goods. Are they items that you need to own or could you hire or share them with friends and neighbours?

Join us to talk and reflect on what we could do to “share all that we have.”

Monday 31st of August 2020 from 7.30- 8.30pm
