Organizer Interfaith Summit on Climate Change

Organizer of Interfaith Summit on Climate Change: Monday morning sessions

As part of a global effort to mobilize action and ambition on climate change, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is organizing a Climate Summit on 23 September 2014 in New York. In order to highlight the specific contributions that faith traditions bring to the international climate debate, the World Council of Churches and Religions for Peace will organize an Interfaith Summit on Climate Change, to be held in New York 21-22 September 2014.

One of the objectives of this Interfaith Summit will be to convey the faith communities’ concerns and proposals to the Secretary General’s Climate Summit as part of long term efforts to influence the climate negotiations and the contributions countries bring to the table.

Thirty religious leaders will gather in New York for the Interfaith Summit. The group will reflect a balance of gender, religions, geography, strong moral leadership and knowledge, as well as engagement on issues related to climate change. The inclusion of indigenous people and youth will be key. All the participants will be asked to commit to being advocates for climate justice and the protection of the earth both at the global and the national level.
