Sacred Earth, Sacred Trust – A day of Worldwide Faith Climate Action | 12th June 2016

FAITHS RISING FOR PEOPLE & PLANET

Sacred Earth, Sacred Trust is a worldwide, multi-faith day of prayer & action for the planet and a call for world leaders to commit to a 1.5 degree limit on global temperature rise.

 

Six months after world leaders reached the Paris Agreement, communities around the world will come together in a day of beautiful commitment and blessing for the earth.

 

HOW TO JOIN IN

Around the world communities are celebrating our Sacred Earth in an incredible variety of ways. Our diversity is our strongest power.

 

Here are just a couple of the ways communities are joining in:

  1. Say a prayer, make a blessing, sing a song or meditate – on your own, with your family or bring your community together.

  2. Stage a sit in meditation outside a place that’s important locally – a new fracking site, your town hall, a coal mine, or a place that’s at risk.

  3. Hold your service outdoors, to reconnect the community to nature.

  4. Organise a community project – paint a mural, banners or build a sculpture.

  5. A march through your town, bring together people from your community and beyond around protecting our planet for the vulnerable.

After the celebrations we will join together in calling for action to protect the earth and vulnerable people around the world by sharing a photo or video lifting up the call for 1.5°C.

 

This could be a mural, a poster, writing in the sand or singing a song – the more creative the better!
