Local residents, including supporters and volunteers from CAFOD and Christian Aid, are meeting with MP Rebecca Long Bailey to Speak Up about climate change on 15th October.
The event will begin with a nature walk. Supporters will meet at Emmanuel Church M6 5PN for a nature walk around Buile Hill Park, with reflections from the Pope’s Encyclical Laudato Si’, before continuing to Mount Chapel Church.
There, MP Rebecca Long Bailey and Bishop John Arnold shall speak to residents about the local environment
CAFOD Chair of trustees, Bishop John Arnold, said:
“Speak Up stands alongside organisations such as CAFOD and Christian Aid, in working to protect our common home. By working together as part of the Climate Coalition we are encouraging our government to shift to 100% renewable energy within a generation and to ratify the Paris climate agreement. In doing so, our government will be taking positive steps to combating climate change.
“The devastating effects of climate change are already being felt by our global brothers and sisters, living among the world’s poorest communities. With determination and action from politicians and people everywhere, we can provide a beautiful, flourishing planet for many generations to come.”
People from across Salford have invited MP Rebecca Long Bailey to urge her to take action on climate change.
Local residents will ask for progress on tackling climate change in the name of the things they love that could be affected by climate change at the event, which takes place from 10.30 – 13.00 at Emmanuel Church.
