In 2015, the Church of England, Christian Aid, CAFOD and Tearfund came together to organise a Pilgrimage2Paris ahead of COP21 – the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Negotiators from more than 190 nations gathered to discuss a new global agreement on climate change aimed at limiting greenhouse gas emissions from 2020 when current commitments run out.

Inspired by their faith, pilgrims from across the UK walked from London to Paris over two weeks, calling on world leaders to agree a fair, ambitious and binding climate change deal. It started with a service at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Friday 13 November, and arrived in Paris on Friday 27 November, just ahead of COP21.
