Event description

Description

We will livestream the Interfaith Speaker Event from the Assembley Hall into the next door room at Church House, the Hoare Memorial Room.

Please note these additional tickets are to watch the event live on screen in the Hoare Memorial Room, not for the main Assembly Hall, which is fully booked.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote address at the Interfaith Speaker Event will be given by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

Dr Rowan Williams will be leading the interfaith Walk of Witness at 11.30am, and supporting the mass lobby. Dr Williams recently commented "It really isn't an exageration to say the future of the human race is now at stake ... wide, deep support from the public is needed, to bring this matter fully to the attention of our political leaders, to show that we can achieve democratic change, for the good of everybody in our world."

He will be joined by faith leaders who have also called for urgent action on climate change, including:


  • Qari Asim MBE, Chair of the Mosques and Imans Advisory Board
  • Vishvapani, Triratna Buddhist teacher and Radio 4 Thought for the Day contributor
  • Rabbi Jonathan Wittenburg, leader of Masorti Judaism in the UK
  • Christine Allen, Director of CAFOD
  • Anya Nanning Ramamurthy, Quaker school strike activist


“We have heard for years the predictions that the uncontrolled burning of fossil fuels will lead to an accelerated warming of the Earth. …these predictions are coming true; our actions have had consequences that are deeply threatening for many of the poorest communities in the world.

“Rich, industrialised countries, including our own, have unquestionably contributed most to atmospheric pollution. Both our present lifestyle and the industrial history of how we created such possibilities for ourselves have to bear the responsibility for pushing the environment in which we live towards crisis.” Former Archbishop Dr Rowan Williams.
