Light the Way Vigil – Sydney

Light The Way - Sydney

Join us in Sydney on the 24th of September, as we come together with thousands across the globe to Light the Way to a better future!

The evening before global goals for sustainable development are adopted and Pope Francis addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York, we will stand united under one sky. From Australia to India, South Africa to Brazil, thousands of us will #LighttheWay through every continent and call for urgent action to tackle poverty, inequality and climate change.

As the sun sets over cities around the globe, and as darkness sets in, our lights will shine brightly. In Sydney, we will come together in an informal park setting offer a prayer for our earth, listen to a number of speakers, including Jacqui Remond from Catholic Earthcare Australia and dialogue about what we can do at an individual and community level to address climate change. We will finish the evening by creating a beautiful message for our world leaders in New York using solar powered lights.

Events around the globe will follow ours, finishing in New York, where thousands of people will take to the streets outside the UN. The evening will culminate in a spectacular light show, showcasing the messages and actions from global events, including ours here in Sydney.

Where: Bradfield Park, Milsons Point

When: September 24, 5.30 – 7pm
