Dr Palmer says young Australians expect action for the common good.
“Over the past year, children and young people have led us in expressing their concern for the life of our Earth,” said Dr Palmer.
“They are calling for all of us to work together to respond to the environmental devastation that is having tragic consequences in many parts of our world.
“The Uniting Church joins these voices of young and older people in calling for action.
“As we work together, life-giving and life-restoring transformation becomes possible.
“Together may we be part of the processes of healing and renewal that Christ is bringing to the world,” said Dr Palmer.
