Scottish Churches webinar and pledge
COP26, Divestment & Investment in Just & Green Recovery
Wed, 3 March 2021 7pm
Register to join the webinar here:
Join Christian Aid’s Alejandro Alemán Treminio and leading Scottish church campaigners to discover how fossil fuel investment is endangering the lives of our global brothers and sisters.
Alejandro Alemán Treminio works in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the western hemisphere after Haiti.
Nicaragua is one of the three countries in the world worst affected by weather catastrophes, and the UN has warned that storms here will only get worse. In November 2020, Hurricane Iota caused devastation across the region with millions of people affected. Homes and crops were flattened.
These emergencies push back the country's economic development.
Christian Aid works with local communities in Nicaragua to monitor and adapt to the climate crisis. As climate change is affecting the coffee yield, we are supporting local communities to diversify their crops with cocoa plants.
Stand together with Scottish churches to fight this climate crisis

Fancy a Film Night?
Thank You for the Rain tells the story of Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya who has used his camera to capture the life of his family, and the human costs of climate change. This film is a great way to share the bigger justice story of the climate crisis with your community.
Christian Aid’s Campaigns team have made the film available for our supporters to watch online. Why not host an online watch party and use it to start a discussion about climate, creation and COP in your church?
