Welcome

Many Quakers worldwide view climate change as a peace and justice concern. They seek to transform the human activities which feed environmental crises unprecedented in human history, including the rate of species extinction, ocean acidification, soil erosion, chemical pollution and the rate of rising global temperature. Many Quakers view these crises as symptoms of a broken relationship with the Earth. In turn, they seek to live with hope and love, to live more sustainably and fairly in cherishing Creation.
