Exploring Faith & Climate Justice-min

In 2021, Britain Yearly Meeting made commitments to climate justice and antiracism. To support Yearly Meeting to live up to these commitments, Quaker Peace and Social Witness and Woodbrooke are partnering to support a ‘year of learning and spiritual reflection’ about climate justice.

Through the year of learning you will explore the historical context of climate justice, understand how a justice-based approach differs from other approaches to climate action, and discover practical examples of climate justice work in the UK and globally. The course has been designed for Quakers who are concerned about not only the climate but also other social justice issues and will help you deepen your understanding of the connections between them.

Delivered through a combination of written resources, regular online gatherings, speaker events and an online discussion forum over the course of one year, you will join with other Quakers to explore what justice-based action against climate breakdown might look like for you, your community and Yearly Meeting. Allow 3-4 hours per month – although of course the more time you give, the more you will get from the year.

For each module there will be two online gatherings, at the beginning and end of the module. These will be community spaces for spiritual reflection and worship sharing. Participants can join at any time and will get access to the whole course.

(If you are part of a group or meeting – whether interfaith, Quaker, or from your local community, we encourage you to share the written resources with your group and discuss them together. This is not compulsory but we hope it will enhance your experience of the course!)
