What is a climate champion?

Climate change, living more sustainably and caring for creation are crucial parts of our faith. This is our international volunteer opportunity will enable you to gain new experiences, meet other volunteers from across Europe and play your part in creating a better world.

In March 2018, we recruited 30 new climate champions. Keep in touch on how you can join in 2019.

Skills and training

As a CAFOD climate champion, you will take part in international workshops on sustainability with other Catholic young people from across Europe. When you return, 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 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!

For more information and how to apply 

Recruitment for climate champions has now closed, but we hope to run a new climate champion programme in 2019, so stay tuned!
