FAITHS 4 CLIMATE JUSTICE

A Global Multi-Religious Action

17-18 October 2021

Two weeks before global climate negotiations, people of diverse religions will rise to send a message: destroying the planet is against our religions.

Join us!

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.

As people of faith, we believe that the Earth and all people are sacred. We are calling for an immediate end to new fossil fuel projects, deforestation, and related financing, a massive commitment to green jobs to reduce climate pollution and end poverty for millions, and climate reparations from wealthy countries to equip vulnerable nations for a better future.
