Anglcans Think that Climate Action is a Priority for the Church

Anglicans appear to be in agreement that combating climate change is an important issue for the church. There are many different views on how Anglicans should respond to the climate crisis. The Church of England has put forward investment guidelines that take climate concerns into account. Some dioceses have voted to divest from fossil fuels including the Diocese of Montreal and the Diocese of Quebec has already fully divested. Two motions for climate sensitive investing will be brought forward at the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada in July.

In 2016 Anglicans from across Australia and around the world met in Melbourne on Ash Wednesday to discuss how the Anglican Church should respond to the challenges posed by climate change. They unanimously agreed that it should be a key priority of the church in our time.

As reviewed in this video Anglicans share their views and come to the conclusion that the church must act on climate change.
