Faith-based responses to the CLIMATE EMERGENCY

 

 

 

 

GLOBAL MULTI FAITH CLIMATE ACTION

Sacred People Sacred Earth

 

1. Global multi-faith statement on the climate 

Please sign GreenFaith International's multi faith statement calling for a recovery from COVID which will help create a more just world order while tackling the climate crisis. 

It has been signed by hundreds of high-profile leaders of a wide range of faiths as well as regular people of faith and we'd love you to sign this and ask others to do the same. By March 11 we aim to have the signatures of thousands of religious leaders and individual people of faith and spirit.

 

2. Places of worship worldwide call for climate justice

11 am on Thursday, March 11, 2021 Global Day of Action - humanity's "eleventh hour" to act on climate

In support of the statement and to draw attention to it, faith communities around the world are being asked to ‘sound the alarm’ for the climate and call for climate justice as we try to get our economies going in the wake of COVID. Please join the biggest ever global faith-based Day of Action for the Climate. The theme of of the day is Sacred People, Sacred Earth.

Each place of worship, faith-based small group or household will choose its own way to do this: by ringing its bells, by sounding a note on the shofar, calling the Azan, by chanting and by meditating. Just as long as make a noise - or even some thunderous silence! We each have our own traditions, but we will be united in one clear message.

To find where an event is planned near you, please check out the map on this page. Please register your event below - so it can be visible to interested people of faith and the media, and help make an impact.

After the Day of Action, GFI will call for  a “Year of Action” in the lead-up to COP26 which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
