Climate Justice Action

The Community Church of St Mark supports changing to a carbon-neutral economy.
 
In response to our Governments announcement of $52.9mill to the gas industry please tackle one of these tasks:
 
1. Write to
Prime Minister, Scott Morrison and Angus Taylor, Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction to tell them you do not want public money to be given to ageing and dirty coal or gas industries.
Tell them you want funding to go to clean and renewable energy. Simple and straight forward letters is all that is required.
 
Contact details:
(This gives you a form to complete and space to write your message.)
 
 
2. Sign the petition for the Australian Conservation Foundation
They are calling on Independent MPs and Cross Benchers to support renewable energy and not gas and coal.
 
Go to www.acf.org.au, on their home page find the petition to our Independent Reps and Be a Champion for Clean Energy. Second campaign listed.
 
3. Make a poster for your window or fence saying
FUND OUR FUTURE NOT GAS.
 
4. Knit for Global Warming action – visit the Common Grace website
 

You’re invited to mix your craft skills with your enthusiasm for climate justice and Knit For Climate Action.

This new, year-long Creation & Climate Justice initiative brings together knitters from across Australia to knit 101 beautiful scarves that follow the pattern of 101 years of climate data, that will be gifted to church and political leaders next winter.

We can all work together to create 101 beautiful, science-led works of art that will inspire our communities and leaders to take immediate and drastic actions to preserve and restore God’s beautiful creation in the midst of this climate crisis.

Register as a knitter

It doesn’t matter if you’re an accomplished knitter or a recent beginner, you’ll be supported with resources to complete your scarf. Register your interest in knitting a scarf and you will receive a Knitter’s Handbook to download. We ask that you also consider who else in your community would be interested in knitting alongside you and invite them to register too.
