Colleges, School and Institutes


The author is a practicing member of the Quaker (Society of Friends) religion, and throughout he comes to the problem of Climate Change / Global Warming from a moral viewpoint. The article describes how the six Quaker Testimonies (i.e. way we should lead our lives) on Truth and Integrity, Social Justice, Equality, Simplicity, Peace and Sustainability lead him in certain personal directions at an individual level, and what advice he might give to Governments and World organisations (e.g. the United Nations).
