Around Australia there are a number of organisations who are committed to prayer and action on climate change.
For more information, visit the following:
Hope for Creation is a movement of Australian Christians committing to prayer and action on climate change. We call on our churches to express their hope for creation through prayer, action and advocacy and we call on Australia’s politicians to take stronger action on climate change.
ARRCC is a multi-faith, member-based organisation of people from around Australia who are committed to taking action on climate change. We bring together representatives from all the major faith traditions to work together in addressing climate change.
Care for creation and justice are at the centre of WCC work on climate change. The Bible teaches the wholeness of creation and calls human beings to take care of the garden of Eden (Gen 2:15). The God of the Bible is a God of justice who protects, loves and cares for the most vulnerable among his creatures.
The Forum on Religion and Ecology is the largest international multi-religious project of its kind. With its conferences, publications, and website it is engaged in exploring religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to broaden understanding of the complex nature of current environmental concerns.
