The climate crisis is widely acknowledged by people of all faiths as the biggest moral challenge the world has ever faced.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
Together with our brothers and sisters of all nations, traditions, and with the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. On September 21, we will join the Peoples Climate March to demand our world leaders answer this moral challenge and take big steps to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
We believe a brighter future is within reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities; and, a world where people step up to the plate and act as good stewards of the Earth.
