The Methodist Church of Fiji will reach out to the grassroots level to advocate and raise awareness on Climate Change.
Methodist spokesperson, Reverend James Bhagwan, says a delegation from the COP23 Presidency will be presenting at the Conference to enlighten the members on the climate change effects and the preparation so far on the Fiji Presidency.
“As we are moving towards COP23 in Bonn and beyond the year after and the years after, it’s important that we look at ways that we can do some meaningful work here at the ground, even though we are low carbon polluters, but we still have a responsibility to creation.”
Rev. Bhagwan adds the churches in the Pacific have been in the forefront of climate change awareness in the last three decades and will continue to do so.
Church executives from 58 divisions will be part of the one week conference that will begin next week.
