Join us at the Informal Interfaith gathering in the spirit of the Talanoa Dialogue that will take place both in-person at COP28 and virtually on 30 November from 1:30 pm SAST / 15:30 GST.
Talanoa dialogues are Fijian indigenous peoples’ way of solving problems in their communities, and Fiji, when president of COP23, introduced the concept to work on the most challenging issues. The methodology of a Talanoa Dialogue leads participants to address the following questions: Where are we? // Where do we want to go? // How do we get there?
As faith communities active in climate action, the Talanoa Dialogue will bring us to discuss, as faith communities in relation to climate challenges: where are we; where do we want to go; and how do we get there.
This gathering also aims to provide a nourishing and hopeful event for climate justice advocates at the start of the COP, as well as space to look at solutions from different angles.
