COP26 Relay


Welcome to the Canterbury Cathedral to St Paul’s walk, joining the national Young Christian Climate Network #RelaytoCOP26 to Glasgow.

We’ll be taking part in the nationwide pilgrimage from Friday 30 July to Thursday 5 August to show our unity in the call for action as leaders meet at the UN Climate Change Conference in the autumn.

Although organised by the YCCN, there is no age restriction for those wanting to take part (but if you are under 18, you will need to be accompanied by an adult). Due to COVID guidelines only 30 people per section are allowed to join.  Please click on the walk you would like to be part of to sign up.

Everyone can be part of the journey by sending us your prayers and hopes on our Prayers for COP26 page and the team will carry with them as they travel.
