General Guidance

Some general points to bear in mind as you begin your journey:

  • Action against climate change needs to be seen holistically: it is difficult and not usually right to isolate environmental issues from social issues. I.e. action to tackle deforestation in the rainforest needs to take account of the needs of local indigenous people.
  • Don't be legalistic: act out of love for God and your neighbours and His planet. Sometimes, you will need to prioritise a relationship over an environmental principle, although this cannot be a permanent state of affairs. For example, you might need to meet a friend in need for a chat in a chain cafe which you would not normally frequent.
