Working together we’ve got the power to tackle climate change

You are invited to the climate and energy event at The McAuley Upper School, Doncaster on 17th October 2014 from 6.30pm onwards.

Young people from The McAuley School, Doncaster are taking a lead in tackling the effects of climate change on communities everywhere.  Calling on MP’s and policymakers to support affordable and cleaner energy to promote practical solutions to conserve precious resources and so reduce the effects of climate change on the poorest communities.

Rasha Kotaiche, McAuley Student and a CAFOD young volunteer says “climate change hits the poorest and weakest most; together we have to find ways to use less resources and help people everywhere to access renewable energy”.  Working across the school community and with CAFOD supporters in the area the students are promoting small but significant lifestyle changes, such as recycling household rubbish and turning off taps when brushing teeth as well as calling on politicians to keep climate change issues at the top of the political agenda. The students have invited Caroline Flint MP to listen to their concerns on these issues and to hear, first hand, from one of CAFOD’s partners from Peru whose community is living with the effects of climate change and the threat it poses to their livelihoods.

The evening will begin with fun campaigning activities and information about the One Climate, One World campaign and other areas of CAFOD’s work. There will be the opportunity to complete the ‘For the love of….’ online action, be photographed in our ‘Photo Booth’ and the chance to find out more about becoming an MP correspondent, a campaigning role vital to CAFOD’s work at home.
