GreenFaith Australia, an interfaith environmental organisation founded at a meeting in Temple Beth Israel in 2008, is about to merge with ARRCC, the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change. ARRCC has been rather Sydney-Canberra centric and hasn't quite lived up to its national name. Similarly, GreenFaith Australia has not lived up to its name remaining mainly a Victorian organisation although in recent times an active green shoot has come into being in Tasmania. The merger, it is hoped, will extend the reach of both organisations in bringing the voices of faith into the climate change conversation.
