Panel: Church Land and the Climate Crisis


Hear about how the 500,000 acres of Church and Christian-owned land (1% of total land in the UK) contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, but can also be a carbon sink when managed sustainably. Operation Noah’s recent report has challenged UK Churches to grow more trees, protect and restore peatland and support farmers to reduce emissions and transition to net zero. Learn from inspiring case studies, and pick up practical steps and opportunities to take action. There will be the chance to ask questions and share stories of how Church land can be managed to benefit the climate, nature and people. With Andy Atkins, A Rocha UK CEO, Sharon Hall, Operation Noah and Elizabeth Perry, Anglican Alliance Chaired by Operation Noah’s Julia Corcoran. Operation Noah is a Christian charity working with the Church to inspire action on the climate crisis.
