COP 26, scheduled to take place in Glasgow, UK, this November, is a crucial moment in the fight for climate justice. Due to COVID-19, this COP has already been delayed a year. The time for countries to implement necessary and ambitious climate action is fading.
We urge you to join the Global Prayer and Action Chain for Climate Justice and to sign and distribute the petition to your networks.
The petition will be presented to world leaders at a COP 26 public event. The more signatures there are from people around the world, the more impact it will have. It tells our world leaders that they must set ambitious targets in solidarity with the world’s most vulnerable people – those who are most affected by climate change. Governments must take urgent action to limit warming to 1.5C by cutting emissions and significantly increasing climate finance to the poorest and most vulnerable.
As people of faith, we believe that each person matters to God, and each deserves to be protected from climate change. We need everyone to join us in calling for climate justice. As well as distributing the petition, we encourage you to pray for climate justice. Sign up for the global prayer chain and join a Prayer Service for Climate Justice.
Jesus said, “if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.”
Together, we can persuade world leaders to put aside their differences and implement ambitious climate action.
Sign the petition today and join us to demand Climate Justice for All.
