FAITHS 4 CLIMATE JUSTICE
A Global Multi-Religious Action
17-18 October 2021
SUNDAY, 17 OCTOBER
At temples, mosques, and churches around the globe, we’ll call for climate justice and care for the vulnerable by ringing our bells, singing, praying, meditating, calling the Azan, sounding the shofar – whatever is true to our tradition. We’ll also unfurl banners on our sacred buildings that make it clear: the time to act is now.
MONDAY, 18 OCTOBER
Dressed in religious garb, we’ll take our faiths into the streets and to our leaders’ doorsteps. We’ll deliver our demands to political and financial leaders, hold prayer or meditation vigils outside government and bank offices, sing hymns about the climate, or take action rooted in our deepest values.
