Engaging the United Nations on Climate Justice and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change

Room 106
The World Council of Churches’ Working Group on Climate Change, under the program on Economic and Ecological Justice, along with partners in the Inter-Faith Liaison Committee to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), regularly contributes a faith perspective to the negotiations and meetings of the Conference of the Parties (COPs). Identifying climate change as a moral, ethical, and spiritual challenge, this panel will describe what faith communities can do towards implementing the Paris Accord and towards making the shift to a sustainable climate future.
