Take action for climate justice

Join us in calling on our political leaders to take action for climate justice for the world's most vulnerable communities, and in making changes in our own lives to be more environmentally sustainable.


Climate Justice Action Kit

This Climate Justice Action Kit helps you explore climate justice, Laudato Si’ and stories from our partners on the frontlines of climate change. You’ll find ideas for taking action, including running a climate petition, a Hearts 4 Climate action, letter-writing circles, hosting film events and taking practical actions for sustainability.
