Get involved in Global Divestment Day 13 – 14 February!

 

On 13 and 14 February thousands of people from across the world will take action to call on institutions and individuals to move their money away from fossil fuels as part of the first ever Global Divestment Day. Already the World Council of Churches, Quakers in Britain, the Church of Sweden and over 40 other Churches and faith communities have committed to disinvest. It’s time for UK Churches to join them by breaking their ties with fossil fuel companies and using their resources to support a clean and sustainable future. Let’s call on the Churches to take action on Global Divestment Day!

How can you get involved?

Send us your messages for a Valentine’s Day card to the Church of England and Methodist Church

On Wednesday 11 February – as the Church of England meets for its General Synod – we will deliver a giant Valentine’s Day card to the Church of England and Methodist Church, asking them to show their love for God’s Creation by breaking up with the fossil fuel industry. We will be making a collective card to share your messages about the things you love that are threatened by climate change, and why you believe UK Churches should disinvest. Here are a couple of the messages we’ve received so far!
