Lifestyle: Operation Noah -- The Community Climate Change Campaign

Paul Bodenham
Issued Date: 22 Feb 2007


Operation Noah is a campaign about climate change for churches and
community groups. It enables them to take action, both as citizens at the
national and international level, and as consumers at the personal level, by
encouraging people to join the ‘Climate Covenant’. The Kyoto Protocol
represents only a start to the urgent worldwide task to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions. Operation Noah will build a mandate to encourage the UK
government to take a lead in negotiations for a long-term safe and just
resolution to the climate crisis. It also shows how people, churches and
other groups can switch to clean electricity as a first step to delivering the
solution. The campaign recognizes a spiritual dimension to the climate
crisis, which requires a contribution to be made to public debate from a
faith perspective. The stories of Noah and the Rainbow Covenant have
relevance for our own time, and include symbols full of potential for creative
expression. The campaign enables churches and other groups to offer
a prophetic witness, in a manner that is both attractive and challenging.
