Faith communities demand climate justice
“If we should be true to our faith, we cannot be quiet when we see what is happening,” reads the declaration of the Interfaith Liaison Committee to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to the United Nations climate change summit COP25 taking place in Madrid, Spain, 2-13 December. “We are voices that are driven by hope and compassion. In a most urgent situation to bend the emissions down faith traditions must contribute to the urgent transformation.”
SAFCEI has signed the Interfaith declaration on Climate Change for COP 25 Madrid, 2019.
On 10 December 2019, Rev. Henrik Grape, moderator of the World Council of Churches working group on climate change, handed over the declaration to UNFCCC’s deputy executive director Ovais Sarmad.
