THE Diocese of Worcester is giving people the opportunity to discuss the impact of climate change and what we can do about it at a special debate on Thursday, November 12. All are welcome to come and long to participate or simply find out more from 7pm at the Old Palace, Deansway, Worcester.

Ahead of the International Climate Change Summit which is being held in Paris from November 30, this debate will look at where we should put our energies to make a real difference for the future of our planet.

Diocesan Mission Development Officer, Phillip Jones, says: “It’s very clear that greenhouse gas reduction proposals won’t limit climate increase to 2°C. Our debate will examine whether we should we lobby governments for more and whether “disinvestment” or “keep it in the ground” campaigns would pressure governments and influence companies to be transparent and forward-looking. We will ask: How can we take responsibility ourselves as citizens/consumers/investors?

The debate will be run by ‘Talk Shop’, which is a way of running debates so that they are fun, informative and everyone gets a say. Everyone is welcome to turn up on the evening. For further information contact: phillipjones@faithatwork.org.uk or hugh.virginia@blueyonder.co.uk.
