Pacific Climate Warriors launch pray for the Pacific campaign
July 13, 2016 5:40 pm
The network of Pacific Island youth, known as the Pacific Climate Warriors, who are building and growing the Pacific Climate Movement, yesterday launched their latest campaign.
The campaign calls for faith communities to pray for our Pacific on their day of sabbath between the 3rd and 11th of September.
Speaking from Apia, Samoa, where the new campaign was launched, three hundred and fifty dot org (350.org) Pacific Coordinator, Koreti Tiumalu stated that this was yet another way this network chose to approach the issue of climate change in the region.
Tiumalu says, we cannot build a Pacific Climate Movement without engaging our faith communities. Faith is pivotal to our people, and like the ocean, it connects us. In the face of the climate crisis, we need prayer to carry our people and faith to build resilience she said.
350.org Pacific works with a group of young people calling themselves the Pacific Climate Warriors.
