Young leaders are using their energy to help everyone cope with climate change

Young people from All Saints Catholic High School, Notre Dame Catholic High School, McAuley Catholic High School and the In Reality Team are working together locally to share skills and talents and help CAFOD to tackle poverty and injustice around the world.

At a recent visit to CAFOD’s headquarters, they heard how climate change affects the livelihoods of the poorest communities around the world and how it threatens to undermine future development.

Some of them are already preparing to participate in the

local launch of CAFOD’s new campaign,

‘For the love of …. One Climate, One World’,

to be hosted by The McAuley School, Doncaster on

Friday, 17 October from 6.30pm onwards.

The evening will raise awareness about climate change and persuade local MPs and policymakers to help everyone to access affordable and cleaner energy. The young people will share their passion and practical ideas to help conserve our God given environment and precious resources for the future.

Special guests will include our new Bishop Ralph Heskett and CAFOD partners from Peru, who will speak from firsthand experience about the effects of the climate on their environment and how they are adapting to change.

All are welcome to attend and refreshments will be offered, so, in the interest of good stewardship, we kindly ask you to let us know if you are coming. Please contact the CAFOD office on 0114 2687817, email hallam@cafod.org.uk or visit www.cafod.org.uk/CAFOD-in-your-area/Hallam.
