Welcome to the first month of Growing our Future where we will be suggesting actions you can take in caring care for our common home.
The COP26 is just 6 months away and need to take political, personal and spiritual action.
What is COP26? Find out here.
Campaigning action: Sign to support our planet.
Jesuit Missions is part of the Climate Coalition, the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to action against climate change. This month, we are encouraging you to sign the Climate Coalition’s declaration for a healthy, greener, fairer tomorrow.
The declaration is addressed to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, calling him to take immediate action for our planet. The more signatures gained, the more pressure it is for politicians to deliver at the COP26.
Sign up to Growing our Future today, and we will email you the simple steps needed to take action by signing the Climate Coalition declaration on the 14 May.
Lifestyle Change: Grow more!
Additional Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from human activities such as burning fossil fuels, is a direct cause of climate change. Plants help to mend our common home by absorbing Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
Make the most of Spring by taking up gardening. Whether you decide on growing your own vegetables to eat or flowers to admire, you’ll be helping suck up the CO2 damaging our Common Home.
Did you know over a lifetime of 100 years, one tree could absorb around a tonne of CO2!!
If you are one of the first 500 people to sign up to Growing our Future, we will send you free seeds to get you started.
Spiritual Reflection – Growing beyond our Attachments.
St Ignatius speaks of attachments. What are those attitudes, emotions, or material objects that keep an individual from God?
This month we will be reflecting on our attachments and how letting go can be good for us, and our common home.
