Right now, we have an opportunity to make change. World leaders will be gathering in December in Poland to determine their commitments to keeping the Paris Climate Agreement, and we will be there with the global church encourage them to keep their promises.
Micah Challenge and Plant with Purpose have joined forces for this effort! We are keen to add as many signatures to this global petition as possible, and will travel to Poland to help deliver the signatures. The global Renew Our World campaign is collecting signatures from Brazil, India, Zambia, Australia the UK and many other nations!
In addition to holding our leaders accountable we are partnering with Plant With Purpose to address climate change in a very tangible on the ground way through reforestation and sustainable agriculture. Plant with Purpose partners with rural communities in Latin America, Asia, and Africa to plant 4.6 million trees. These trees help restore soil health, absorb carbon, and prevent famine, floods, or erosion.
