Activity: Public engagement and outreach › Contribution to the work of non-academic organisations
I supported and worked closely with another Trustee and Board Member of Operation Noah to help develop what became Climate Sunday, a year-long initiative which would take place in the lead up to COP26 in November 2021. Operation Noah provided the seed funding that helped to get the project off the ground. Climate Sunday was supported by 20 organisations and run by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. Over 2,200 UK churches held climate-themed services over the course of the year. Many of those churches also lobbied their MP, signed the Climate Coalition’s letter calling for more ambitious climate action or joined a church greening scheme.
