Faiths 4 Climate Justice: A Global Multi-Religious Action

October 17 - October 18

Two weeks before the United Nations climate negotiations, people of diverse religions will rise together in a global, grassroots, multi-faith action called Faiths 4 Climate Justice. This event is a GreenFaith multi-faith global effort, happening locally all around the world on October 17 and 18. Click here to watch a video about the event.

On October 17th, faith communities will host events to unfurl banners on our sacred buildings calling for climate action, ring our bells, sound gongs and chimes, call the Azan, and more. On October 18th, dressed in traditional religious clothing, we’ll take our faiths into the streets and to our leaders’ doorsteps. We’ll deliver our demands to political and financial leaders, hold prayer or meditation vigils outside government and bank offices, sing hymns about the climate, or take action rooted in our deepest values.

The North Carolina Council of Churches is a co-sponsor of this event. Click here to sign up to be a co-sponsor, join a climate action training, or host and/or find an action.
