Global Climate Action
20 September 2019 11:30am
UCA President Dr Deidre Palmer is encouraging all people of the Uniting Church to join the global climate strike on Friday, 20 September. This is three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit.
The strike for climate movement is encouraging workers around the world to down tools and spend the day demanding emergency action to tackle the climate crisis.
There is an event planned for 12 noon on 20th Sept in Victoria Square, Adelaide - Global Strike 4 Climate (associated with School Strike 4 Climate). See the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/786115985123318/
How you can participate:
1. Register here: https://unitingworld.typeform.com/to/bmlY8C (It helps the UCA to know how many of its people are participating, as this could influence others to join too)
2. Spread the word.
3. Print out a big Uniting Church logo to carry – or add it to your own placard or banner with your climate action message. Find one here: https://sa.uca.org.au/documents/justice/environment-docs/Placard-a3-PORTRAIT.pdf (copy this address into your browser)
4. Show solidarity - Wear a brightly coloured ‘Pacifika’ style shirt to show your solidarity with our fragile Pacific Island neighbours, and/or an Akubra to show solidarity with the drought-stricken Australian bush.
5. Show up!
