“A Call to Conscience: Quaker experiences facing the challenge of Climate Change” features interviews with Quakers worldwide on why they care about climate change, and what they are doing to address the challenge locally, nationally and internationally.
QUNO Geneva has created this publication as a form of witness in facing anthropogenic climate change through love and action, rather than fear. The people portrayed span our worldwide Quaker community, from Africa to Europe, Asia Pacific to the Americas.

Dear Friends in Canada Yearly Meeting,
Last summer, four Friends with deep ties to Quaker Religious Education were moved to invite others to join them in a Quaker religious education community of practice. We are calling it a Quaker RE Collaborative (QREC). We invite Friends who hold a sense of stewardship for the faith formation of Quaker children to join with us. This includes: First Day School teachers, Religious Education Coordinators, RE Committee members, Quaker parents and grandparents, and others. Our welcome and our reach are broad and international in scope. QREC is open to Quakers across the traditional branches of Friends’ organizations. We reached out to Friends in Canada YM last summer, and some have already joined our contact list.
At this time, we would like to share a press release from our first gathering, held in August 2014. We hope you might be able to share this document, as we seek to reach others who hold this same concern and are interested in the Collaborative.
We submitted the attached press release to The Canadian Friend in early October, and again yesterday, but the next issue is full and Sherryll suggested we inquire about posting on the CYM website.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions.
In faith and friendship,
Melinda Wenner Bradley
QREC Steering Group
