Youth Climate Action

The Uniting Church NSW.ACT was the first major institution to endorse the global school strike for climate.  See why we are supporting the student strikers, and read this great letter from the Principal of Newington College in support.   See also why we support scientifically credible, morally responsible climate action generally.

In September 2019, Uniting Church members and Uniting staff rallied in response to the Synod’s resolution to support urgent climate action, and especially young people in their call for inter generational justice.

Hundreds of church members gathered for worship at Pitt St in Sydney, before joining about 80 Uniting staff in the march down to the public rally of 80,000.  Members and staff in other locations around the state also joined in, including in Coffs Harbour, where Rev. Dr Jason John, one of Uniting’s Earth Advocates, addressed the crowd.

The Youth Action Taskgroup was established to mobilise church communities, support and develop youth climate leadership, and keep putting values into action.
