Embracing our role in the one community of life… (Invitation & Call 2022)
Through the Congregation Project commitment, Brigidines support the Pacific Calling Partnership* (PCP) in listening to and supporting Pacific Islander communities to advocate for climate action and climate justice.
Corinne Fagueret (PCP Co-ordinator) and Team were able to visit Kiribati recently where they had the opportunity to reconnect with partners: Kiribati Climate Action Network, Tungaru Climate Alliance and Tungaru Youth Action.
“We also had the honour of working closely with 22 awesome emerging I-Kiribati climate leaders (pictured below) building on their leadership and advocacy skills. On this occasion Edmund Rice Community Services Executive Director Andree Brown joined us on our visit to better understand our work. In Andree’s words: ‘Thank you again for a very enlightening and enjoyable week. Such privilege to have the community open up to us the way they did. A real treasure to hold.’ Thank you to each and everyone of you for partnering with us to work towards climate justice for all. Ninikoria to all of us! (Ninikoria is Courage in I-Kiribati).”

We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental.”
