During Earth Week 2023, The United Church of Canada is joining with numerous denominations and faith-based organizations under one banner, Together for the Love of Creation.

Communities of faith, networks, and regions are invited to initiate and participate in climate justice events during the week of April 16‒23 to pray, learn, and act for the love of creation.

Now is the time to act. As UN Secretary General António Guterres urged with the release of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report,(opens in a new tab) “Our world needs climate action on all fronts—everything, everywhere, all at once.” 

This is a tremendous opportunity for the church to lift up and strengthen the ways that we are putting our house in order by reducing our carbon footprint, raising our spirited voices through advocacy efforts, connecting with the earth, responding to climate impacts, and challenging ourselves to be deep, bold, and daring. Hold an event to share these initiatives with others. Learn from and collaborate with our friends in faith. Attend an event already being organized. Be a catalyst for climate justice.

Mark Earth Week in a way that reflects and challenges your community.
