As Christians, we believe that caring for the earth and for our global neighbours is central to our faith. We are calling on the Canadian government to deliver a just and fair recovery from the pandemic and to build a sustainable future for everyone, by: 

  • Resetting extreme inequality, starting by cancelling debt payments to give poorer countries financial breathing space.
  • Getting the world on track for the safer level of 1.5°C warming, starting with pandemic recovery plans and climate commitments.
  • Restoring damage to the environment to help prevent the next pandemic, starting with forests.

The decisions we make now will shape our economy, society and climate for decades to come. 

We are at a turning point. During the current COVID-19 crisis, many are beginning to wonder what life might look like afterward. Is this a chance to create a new normal? We believe we have an opportunity to address the immediate crisis and look beyond it to transform our society and economy so the whole world, current and future generations, and all of God's creation, can flourish.

For this to happen, we need the Canadian government and world leaders to act. We need pandemic recovery plans that will create good jobs and are aligned with global climate targets. We need national climate commitments that will reduce carbon emissions quickly and put us on course to limit warming to the safer level of 1.5℃.
