Climate Advisory Circle

Climate Advisory Circle

Job Number: 
Opening/Closing Date: 
June 20, 2019 to September 4, 2019

We are seeking two Indigenous people from the United Church to be part of the Climate Advisory Circle, who are active participants in the United Church who believe that the church has an important role in increasing Canada’s action on climate justice.

The Climate Advisory Circle advises staff on work directions for climate advocacy and animation within the broader priorities set by the General Council and Executive. The group participates in discernment processes about

  •  where The United Church of Canada and particularly General Council staff can be most effective
  • where we are called to be as a church; that is, strategic placement of The United Church of Canada’s voice and action, particularly the intersection of the church’s commitment to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and its commitment to climate justice
  • making programmatic choices; for example, how best to use the United Church accreditation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) Conference of Parties (COP) meetings

The group meets twice each year by video-conference call: once in the spring and once in the fall. E-mail consultations occur as required on specific questions, estimated to be four to six times each year.
