Join this webinar to explore how Churches in Scotland can divest from fossil fuels and invest in the just and green recovery ahead of COP26

About this Event

As Scotland prepares to host the UN climate talks (COP26) later this year, we have a unique opportunity to make an impact and increase the pressure on institutions and governments to respond with the urgency that the climate crisis demands.

Join this webinar to find out how Churches in Scotland – both locally and nationally – can support a just and green recovery by divesting from fossil fuels and re-orienting investments towards a clean energy future.

We are delighted to welcome the following speakers:

The webinar will be chaired by Fiona Buchanan, Campaigns and Advocacy Coordinator at Christian Aid Scotland.

Around the world, more than 400 faith institutions have divested from fossil fuels, including the World Council of Churches, the United Reformed Church, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. Fossil fuel divestment will be on the agenda at this year’s General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

We are excited to share that the webinar will see the launch of the Scottish Churches COP26 Pledge on Divestment and the Just and Green Recovery, which can be signed by individuals, churches, regional Church bodies and national Churches.

The webinar is an excellent opportunity to find out more about how your church can join the next global divestment announcement for faith institutions in spring 2021. Join us to find out where your Church denomination currently stands on fossil fuel divestment, and how you can get involved in the campaign.

The webinar series is sponsored by: Eco-Congregation Scotland, Operation Noah, Christian Aid, Justice and Peace Scotland and Friends of the Earth Scotland.
