Omega Climate Change
The Omega Climate Change Group can offer the following materials:
The Climate Change Course in five sessions, each lasting one and a half
hours. It was first used in 2007 and revised for 2008. We will be updating
it again in time for Lent 2009 in the light of both recent developments and
the comments we have received from groups who have used the course in 2008.
It has been used by both church and secular groups. We plan to have the
revised course available in January 2009, but the 2008 course gives a sound
idea of the ground covered in the course.
Developing a responsible Christian life style - the super mini version of
the course. We are aware how difficult it often is to persuade people to
turn out on a cold winter evening so we are planning to produce material
which can be used in or after Sunday worship over five Sundays. The target
time is ten minutes. It will be sharp and to the point and will include
action to be taken before the next week. We also plan to have this available
in January 2009.
The Carbon Trading Game is both fun and instructive. It is part of the
longer course but is also available separately. It is an enjoyable way of
learning how personal carbon trading could work. Available now.
Developing a responsible Christian lifestyle one way of putting it into
practice. A number of Carbon Reduction Action Groups (CRAGs) have sprung up
which seek to support one another in reducing their CO2 emissions by careful
and systematic monitoring of their fuel consumption and travel. This could
be seen as stewardship of our emissions of CO2 similar to our stewardship of
money. It seems a promising approach which we are exploring. Lent could be a
good opportunity to set up such a group.
The first three are available from our website omegaclimate.org.uk or
