* UPDATE – this event has happened. Read how it went.
Join us for the start of this new campaign to help protect the world’s poorest people from the worst effects of extreme weather and climate change.
Climate change is becoming the main obstacle to poverty reduction worldwide. The devastating effects of climate change (shortage of food, rising food prices, destruction of infrastructure) are being felt now and the most vulnerable communities are suffering first and worst. Having nothing to fall back on means the poorest people are more vulnerable, and least able to adapt to, the impacts of climate change.
Be part of this campaign from the start by coming to one of our summer events.
Are you interested in joining us? Sign up here or on the form below.
Date: Wednesday 9 July, 10:30 am – 3:30 pm (including an optional climb up a wind turbine).
This event – in East Anglia’s very own flagship eco-centre – introduces CAFOD’s new major campaign.

We’ll give you campaign actions and discussions that you can use to involve people in your parish and school.
Plus, special guest Anthony Mbandi who will share with us his first hand experience of the effects of climate change and how communities can adapt by building projects that strengthen their resilience.
