World Environment Day
The UN’s most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
The Church of England has a Christian presence in every community across England and in Europe, and is committed to making a positive impact on the environment.
This year's focus is on plastic pollution. Many of us used Lent to consider how we could reduce, reuse and recycle plastic waste and the Church continues to engage on this major issue. Take a look at prayers for World Environment Day and learn more about what some church communities are up to.
Green Health Awards
The benefits of engaging with the natural world for mental, physical and spiritual health is increasingly recognised. These new awards, run in partnership with the Church Times, will recognise churches who are engaging with this work. For example, those communities which make best use of their outdoor space to promote the links between natural environment and our health. The Green Health Awards have now been launched. Do you know a church using its land to promote mental and/or physical wellbeing? Nominate them here.
