Interfaith Climate Statement
At the Interfaith Summit in New York 2014, thirty religious leaders reflecting a balance of gender, religions, geography, strong moral leadership and knowledge, adopted a statement conveying a message on the threat of climate change and the importance of a fair and ambitious outcome of the international climate negotiations.

Climate change affects everyone, but especially the poor and most vulnerable people.

The Interfaith Power and Light: “Paris Pledge”

National Religious Partnership for the Environment: Faith Climate petition
As we approach the UN negotiations for 2015, we prayerfully ask that the US government lead, with a commitment to:
• Legally binding solutions that reduce national greenhouse gas emissions to levels consistent with scientific recommendations that prevent the worst impacts of human induced climate change.
• Provide poor and vulnerable communities here and abroad meaningful support to build low carbon and climate-resilient societies.
Stand with thousands of others fasting for action on climate change. A growing movement of youth, environmentalists and people of faith are showing their strength of commitment by going without food once a month to call for world leaders to do more to solve the climate crisis. Show your support by fasting for the climate.
