Interfaith voices for more ambitious climate action

In the coming months before the next meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP) to the Paris Agreement in November, The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) as a member of the Interfaith Liaison Committee to UNFCCC (ILC) seeks to profile its advocacy for climate justice and care for creation.

ILC partners come from a range of contexts, regions, and beliefs. They all contribute to the climate discussions from value-based and ethical perspectives of different traditions. They aim to offer support to negotiations and encourage decision-makers to take the brave steps needed to create a resilient future.

Since COP26 was postponed by one year, pivotal decisions about Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that the Paris Agreement's parties should have made are overdue.

The webinar will address the following topics:

  • NDCs today: Summary of the current NDC status, based on the report from UNFCCC from 28 February. Highlighting the gap between what is pledged and what is needed to reach the goal to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celcius.
  • Witness of climate change: What are the consequences for the most vulnerable to climate change with the course we are following today? Voices from the most vulnerable regions.
  • Building trust and advocating for a just transition: What does advocacy for COP26 entail and what is the message to decision-makers from a faith-based perspective?
