CAFOD's Climate Champions for 2018 meet for the first time to hear how they will travel to meet campaigners across Europe and learn how they will play their part in tackling climate change. photo

What is a climate champion?

Climate change, living more sustainably and caring for creation are crucial parts of our faith. This volunteer opportunity will enable you to gain new experiences, meet others interested in tackling climate change and play your part in creating a better world.

In March 2018, we recruited 27 new climate champions. Since then, they've visited a sustainability camp or participated in an exchange with campaigners in Poland; they've written blogs; met their MPs; planned campaigning events in schools and parishes; learned loads about campaigning and contributed input to future climate change campaigns.

We'll soon be looking for new climate champions to continue their hard work in 2019!

Skills and training

As a CAFOD climate champion, you will take part in workshops on sustainability with other Catholic young people from across England and Wales. Based on your own strengths and skills, we will support you in raising awareness about climate change, sustainable living and CAFOD campaigns in your parish or community.

We look for young adult Catholics, ages 18-35, with an interest in sustainability and/or campaigning with CAFOD who are enthusiastic to learn more. We also want to recruit people with a mix of skills, experience and backgrounds to take part. You don't have to be an expert!

Recruitment for climate champions in 2019 will open soon, so watch this space! If you have any questions, please contact Libby Abbott
