Faith communities demand climate justice

Interfaith Declaration on Climate Change for COP 25 Madrid 2019

"We have faith and hope that as humanity we can come together to address the severe climate crisis and open windows to a better future."

The statement outlines the urgency to act now, failure of Governments on the delivery of promises from the Paris Agreement, intergenerational justice, economic transitions, the inclusion of social justice along with the urgency for people of faith to speak and act.
