A new research study to investigate climate justice and sustainability public symbols and their possible influences here in our region is now underway. We hope you will join us in sharing our heartfelt support! The purpose of the community-based study is to understand primarily two developments -- the creation process behind the public faith-based symbols for climate justice that now exist on places of faith throughout Waterloo Region, and their subsequent effects on climate justice awareness, discourse and actions (see Faith Climate Justice banners page here for some examples).
This study will help increase understanding of the efficacy of public symbolism promoting climate justice in a local context, and honours the extensive good work that took place to create and promote the climate justice banners by FCJ members, creating a valuable opportunity for reflection.
