More Joy, Less Carbon

A simpler life can bring much joy as well as reduce our carbon footprint. Travelling less and appreciating our local environment, buying local and growing our own food, getting to know and support our local communities  - these and other benefits can come with a more sustainable lifestyle.

5. Do you take time to inform yourself of the impacts of your lifestyle on the world as a whole? Are you willing to make lifestyle changes? Do you seek support and guidance to make choices that reflect our concern for the Earth and all of its peoples?

6. Are you willing to support Quakers in your community to make changes? In doing so, seek opportunities for spiritual growth.

On Aug 29th 2021 Quakers from Jesus Lane, St Neots and Peterborough met pilgrims from Great Yarmouth at Kings Lynn where they took part in an interfaith ceremony and received written messages and sea water from the beach at Great Yarmouth in a plastic bottle found on the beach  - representing the pollution of our seas, and also the rise in sea-level, which is already taking place.

Over the following days a relay of EarthQuakers from Cambridgeshire carried the messages and the water on their bikes from King's Lynn, via Peterborough and Oakham, to Nottingham where they passed them on to pilgrims taking part in the COP26 Pilgimage to Glasgow.
