Church Sharing

Christian’s Mandate on Climate Action 基督徒與氣候行動

  • Learn about climate justice in the Christian faith
  • Share how the work of climate activists fulfills the mission of God
  • Be inspired to take climate actions to heal God’s creation

The Earth, God's beautiful creation, is facing unprecedented challenges. Climate change threatens not only our environment, but also the well-being of countless children and communities around the world, particularly the most vulnerable among us. As Christians, we are called to be stewards of the earth and to act with compassion and justice, especially to those who are most impacted by environmental degradation.

This event will explore the powerful connection between our faith and the urgent need to protect God's creation, with a specific focus on how climate action can alleviate suffering and empower marginalised communities.
