All We can signs up to Crack the Crises
All We Can, the official Methodist relief and development charity, has recently signed up to Crack the Crises – a movement of over 70 organisations who are calling on the UK to take action on climate change, Covid-19, inequality and injustice.
As the UK hosts two major summits in 2021 – the G7 in June, and COP26 in November – the UK government has an opportunity to act as a forward-thinking global player. All We Can, along with other Crack the Crises member organisations, are asking the government to:
- Deal with the Covid-19 crisis, by tackling the virus and preventing future threats;
- Crack the poverty and injustice crisis, by redoubling efforts in this area – ensuring everyone, everywhere, is free, protected, and has access to healthy food, clean water, a safe home and decent education;
- Take urgent action to go further and faster on tackling the climate crisis, prioritising the needs of those worst impacted – often the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised communities who are the least responsible for climate change.

You can get involved by adding a #WaveOfHope to your windows, which will then be displayed at the G7 and COP26 – to show that as a nation we stand committed to taking action in these three key areas.
All We Can will also be sharing stories from its work of those most impacted by the climate crisis, and ways for churches and individuals to get involved in the run up to COP26. Visit allwecan.org.uk for more information.
