Youth Climate Action | September 25

Conversation | Ofa Foiakau | 3rd September 2020

Uniting Earth are standing alongside First Nations communities, school students, unions, faith groups and many more on September 25 as part of the Global Day of Action where there will be COVID safe actions across towns, suburbs, schools, and workplaces across Australia.

Ways to support young climate leaders and build a better future:

Before September 25 –

  • Join the Uniting Advocacy online briefing session

There are 2 online briefings that will give an overview to Australia’s national energy use and the importance of switching to renewable energy, give space for Uniting Church leaders to share their climate concerns and climate change actions as part of the churches mission and faith, provide training and guidance on how to take action by yourself or with others, and help build connections with others who share the same climate concerns.

Click on one of the 2 dates to register for this online briefing

Tuesday 15th September – 10am – 11.30am

Wednesday 16th September – 7pm – 8.30pm

  • Join the Common Grace online prayer vigil in support of the day of action on September 24
  • Write a letter to your Federal Member of Parliament

For some inspiration check out this messaging guide and report from The Australia Institute on reasons to support a renewable-led recovery, not gas
