In his latest encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis says “Global society is suffering from grave structural deficiencies that cannot be resolved by piecemeal solutions or quick fixes. Much needs to change".

But social transformation demands citizen participation - and 2021 offers a lot of opportunities for that. This year, Britain is hosting two major international meetings: the G7 and the UN climate talks. This puts us in a unique position to exercise global leadership and to address some of the structural deficiencies to which Pope Francis refers.

Who is this event for?

This event is for all Catholics interested in the climate crisis and social justice who want to engage their local MP in these issues.
