Quakers believe that the earth is a gift that needs to be cherished rather than a resource to be exploited, not just for now but also for future generations. Quakers in Scotland are a member of Stop Climate Chaos.

Previous and current action on climate change includes:

The produce of the earth is a gift from our gracious creator to the inhabitants, and to impoverish the earth now to support outward greatness appears to be an injury to the succeeding age.

John Woolman, 1772, Quaker Faith and Practice 25.01

Green Light

We've created a section of the website called "Green Light" about what we and others can do, and are doing, about the climate emergency.
