Children have been striking; activists have been demonstrating; what is the environmental crisis and what has it to do with the local church, mission and caring for the poor? This day will bring an up-to-date approach to climate change and biodiversity loss, and touch on other issues such as food, water, soil and plastic. How can we understand these issues as Christians and how can our response be fully missional?
