The Anglican Communion’s Marks of Mission emphasise our commitment to protect, care for and renew life on our planet. Many of ABM's partners are already dealing with the impacts of climate change, among them our closest neighbours.
Fiji is presiding over COP23 (the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) which will be held from 6-17 November.

This letter has already been signed by five Anglican Archbishops: Archbishop Winston Halapua, Archbishop Philip Freier, Archbishop Albert Chama, Archbishop Thabo Magkoba, and Archbishop Francisco Silva.
MEETING WITH PACIFIC LEADERS
September 2017 - ABM Executive Director, Rev’d John Deane, recently attended a meeting of the Anglican Alliance Oceania Regional Advisory Committee (ORAC). ORAC was born out of a strong desire to collaborate and coordinate action in areas of common interest, with members recognising the power of sharing ideas and resources in meeting common goals.
From September 1 to October 4, Christians around the globe came together to pray and care for creation. There were some great resources developed that you can still share with your church communities, to celebrate God's wonderful creation, and stand together for Climate Justice.
