Prayer flags activity

Our friends at Green Christian ran this activity at the Greenbelt Festival and then in support of the faith bridge. It provided a way for churches and groups to participate in the faith bridge even if they were not able to be there in person.

flags-600x400The basic idea is that people write prayers about the climate on coloured squares of material and peg them to a string you have secured around your church/room. These strings of flags can then be used on actions or to decorate occupied spaces during a rebellion.

We have used different colours for different emotions, so that making a flag becomes a way to creatively express our emotions about the climate crisis.
