Development charity Christian Aid has launched a new survey the views of black Christians on issues linked to climate change.
The charity said despite black and brown people being disproportionately affected by climate change around the world, the climate protest movement is often represented and led by white people.
The research is thought to be the first of its kind. It will explore black British Christians' views on environmental matters on a host of issues such as a lack of biodiversity, displacement of people from their homes and poor air quality.
Many have argued the most extreme effects of climate change disproportionately impact people who are black or brown such as intense flooding in south Asia, drought in southern Africa, and extreme tropical storms in Mozambique and the Caribbean.
Speaking about the survey which will be taking place in July and August Chine McDonald, Christian Aid's head of public engagement said: "As a Black Christian myself, I hope this study will provide an important insight into the views of the Black Christian community about one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.
"To our knowledge this is the first time Black Christians have been surveyed on climate change like this."
The charity hopes the survey will provide vital insight to the actions and barriers people have in engaging with the climate agenda ahead of the COP26 UN climate summit in Glasgow next year.
