Order your Global Climate Change Banner in the run-up to Cop26!
A message to faith groups and places of worship from St James's Piccadilly as we approach COP26 #showyourstripes #styleyourstripes
The news from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report is stark - we face a Code Red for humanity.
At COP26 in Glasgow in November, most countries of the world will gather to make decisions that will affect all our futures for decades, or hundreds of years to come. Engagement of faith groups is vital
if humanity is to make the changes we need to survive.
This is an invitation to make a very visible statement at your place of worship by displaying the striped banner illustrated opposite in the run-up to COP26.
The banner has been developed from the work of climate scientist Prof Ed Hawkins at the University
of Reading https://showyourstripes.info/ and shows 170 years of global climate data in a single striking image. Banners are 1.4m high and available in 2m
or 10m lengths. They are eco-printed on fair-trade organic cotton by a cooperative in India and are supplied at cost price.
An interpretive poster for display alongside your banner is attached here as a pdf and displayed opposite. This is best printed on at least A3, or you can of course produce your own personalised interpretation.
**Please place your order by Sunday 5th September to allow for one bulk order to be produced and delivered by mid-October**
Banners may be ordered here: tammam.co.uk/banners
