This resource is designed for study leaders to engage youth in the issue of climate change as both a justice and faith issue.
- Chapter 1 begins by linking climate change with our “consume and dispose” society.
- Chapter 2 explores the implications of climate changwelle for our planet, both in terms of our changing environment and those most affected by these changes.
- Chapter 3 shares how communities are responding to root causes and the impact of climate change.
- Chapter 4 closes with how we can respond, individually and collectively as communities of faith.
At the heart of the study are five climate voices. These voices are five individuals who have been engaging climate justice issues in a variety of contexts. The study encourages youth to interact with the voices in each session to deepen their understanding of climate change through perspectives from around the world.
The study also includes bible studies, interactive activities, art, and timeline to study climate change and justice issues.
