Christian Aid COP26 prayer chain event

Make your voice heard at COP26

It's time to be heard.

The climate crisis is a storm we all face, but we’re not all in the same boat. For some, the storm is stronger and the waves are already breaking.

This year is crucial in the struggle for climate justice. As the UK government hosts the United Nations COP26 climate talks in November there is an opportunity to stand with people on the frontline of the crisis to demand action not words from world leaders.

It will take all of us to stop this climate crisis and that means we need you!

The climate crisis hurts us all, as we’ve witnessed recently with heatwaves across the US and Canada, extreme rainfall leading to devastating flooding in parts of Europe. However, although we are all in the same storm we are not in the same boat. Those living in poverty in the global south experience the worst impacts of climate change every day and yet have done least to cause the problem. This is an injustice.

Our leaders must take action to

  • increase financial support to the world’s poorest countries to confront the climate crisis,
  • limit global temperature rise to 1.5oC
  • stop the expansion of fossil fuel energy and to support clean energy

From now on, every moment matters and every action counts in the fight for climate justice.

Will you rise to the moment?
