Archbishop Thabo fasts for the climate

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba travelled to Bonn, Germany early in June for United Nations talks held to prepare for the next major international climate conference in Paris in December.

The Archbishop, who chairs the Anglican Communion Environmental Network, attended the talks in his role as a Global Climate Ambassador for the ACT Alliance, an international coalition of more than 140 churches and affiliated organisations working to create positive and sustainable change in the lives of poor and marginalised people.

  1. Great to see you taking the lead in the Anglican Communion and participating in the ACT alliance on such important issues, Archbishop Thabo!

Good to see the Anglicans and Catholics putting this high on their agendas!
