The growing Climate emergency is the defining issue of our time and now is the defining moment to do something about it. There is still time to tackle climate change, but it will require an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society. We don't want to see communities pushed back into poverty. We don't want to see growing instability in climate-vulnerable parts of the world. We believe God’s heart for justice requires us to act now.
We want our governments to step up and announce new climate pledges and bold national climate plans at the UN Climate Summit. We know God can bring hope to hopeless situations. Let’s bring hope by speaking together in one bold voice, praying and taking action. Join as we pray and March at this vital time.
Pray for the UN Climate Summit
The UN Secretary-General is inviting world leaders from government, finance, business and civil society to support the implementation of the Paris Agreement and to increase ambition and climate action. This will be done at the UN Climate Action Summit taking place in New York on the 23rd of September.
He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilise political will for an ambitious and meaningful agreement.
Join us as we pray for our Global Leaders on the 23rd of September.
