ARRCC organisers are excited to offer this rare opportunity for people of faith to be empowered to respond more effectively to the climate crisis. The first national ARRCC Conference is being held on 8 – 10 November at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture in Canberra.
The hope is that you will draw strength from solidarity with like-minded others, and feel less isolated. It’s not easy being so concerned about climate change when many in your own faith community are not especially switched on to the issues.
The second important reason to come along is to become more effective as a change-maker in your own area. Conference participants will share and learn with the help of inspirational campaigners, school climate strikers, faith leaders and experts in their fields. The aim is that you return to your own setting with more insight, skills and confidence to organise action at a local level.
