because everyone depends upon the earth

Since the start of the Industrial Revolution the global population has exploded, along with the intensity of our demand upon the earth’s resources. We have now reached a point at which the environmental systems on which life depends are being pushed to breaking point by humankind.  The climate is changing, the oceans are acidifying and biodiversity is declining.

In 2015-16 A Just Cause ran a campaign that called Baptist churches to recover a God-centred valuing of creation, to take measures to lighten our impact on the planet, and to call our governments to take action commensurate with the risk.
