The start of Lent saw the beginning of a new international campaign – Renew Our World – in which tens of thousands of Christians from six countries will join together in prayer and action to try to tackle climate change.
Renew Our World is campaigning for clean renewable energy and sustainable agriculture for the world’s poorest communities. Christians are being urged to join in prayer to help the world’s poorest people to flourish. This long-term campaign aims to mobilise and inspire churches around the world to beat hunger, poverty and injustice, starting with climate change. The campaign is taking place in the UK, USA, Australia, Zambia, Peru and Nigeria.
