Children Given a Voice About Climate Change by Churches in the UK

I ran across this on Dave Roberts’ blog on Children Matter. It is about an organization called Operation Noah, which is staging a demonstration in Cardiff (in the UK) by turning a ship into an ark, of sorts. Children will be dressed as animals entering the ark and holding signs representing countries that are high at risk due to climate change. In doing this, Operation Noah is encouraging the UK to take a greater role in talks happening in Copenhagen in December 2009 regarding climate change.

In relation to my last post about connecting spirituality with religion, I thought this was a really neat thing that these churches are doing.

Have you run into any other stories about churches giving children a voice into making the world a better place? Please share!
