CCS Friday on Engaging Youth in Climate Justice

December 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

free but you must register

This summer, 15 youth from across the church participated in the United Church of Canada’s first ever Climate Motivators program. Each student was sponsored by, and in partnership with, a local community of faith where they worked together on local climate justice or environmental needs.

The motivators connected online and in-person to learn how to be leaders, worship, be in nature, act for change, and influence church policy.

Our special guest will be Amy Crawford, team leader for Faith Formation and Mission with the General Council of the United Church of Canada. Amy has just returned from a short sabbatical where she was reviewing and evaluating what happened to the youth and the people they interacted with. She will share some of her insights about getting youth involved in educating about climate change.

CCS Fridays are free. Please register to receive a zoom link, here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZclduiqqTMqHdzVZnAl2bcp5TI2oUuC5d7z#/registration

CCS Fridays are online conversations to help us respond faithfully to emerging issues in local contexts. These workshops are open to anyone who might be interested. There will be a presentation that will be recorded for future viewing, plus opportunities to engage with the ideas in small groups.
