A Shared Quaker Statement: Facing the Challenge of Climate Change

It would go a long way to caution and direct people in their use of the world, that they were better studied and knowing in the Creation of it. For how could [they] find the confidence to abuse it, while they should see the great Creator stare them in the face, in all and every part of it?” William Penn, 1693

As Quakers, we are called to work for the peaceable Kingdom of God on the whole Earth, in right sharing with all peoples.[1] We recognize a moral duty to cherish Creation for future generations. We call on our leaders to make the radical decisions needed to create a fair, sufficient and effective international climate change agreement.
