Climate action focus for Earth Day 202022/04/2020
Earth Day 2020 (Thursday 22 April)
The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.
Earth Day Network, work year-round with more than 50,000 partner organisations in 190 countries, with global campaigns and programs which bring hundreds of thousands of new voices into the environmental movement. The Network encourages us to take up the opportunity to reignite the environmental movement and unite those who care for and protect the earth.
Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
God of all creation, your goodness and glory shine forth through everything you have made. Through the light of faith, help us to see this world, our common home, not as a resource to dominate and exploit, but as a gift to be cherished by all generations. Prompted by your Spirit, we ask this in the name of Jesus, through whom all creation was made. Amen.
