Details

At the beginning of COP26, LWF as part of the Interfaith Liaison Committee to the UNFCCC invites persons interested in climate justice and interfaith dialogue to an informal interfaith gathering in the spirit of Talanoa dialogue. 

This gathering serves as a platform for faith communities attending COP26 to share their initiatives, concerns, and hopes in their work for climate justice under a Talanoa dialogue framework. 

Talanoa dialogues are indigenous peoples from Fiji’s way of solving problems in their communities, and the Fijian Presidency of COP23 introduced the concept to work on the most challenging issues. The methodology of the Talanoa dialogue leads participants to address the following questions: 

  • Where are we? 
  • Where do we want to go? 
  • How do we get there? 

This event will introduce an opening panel that will expose the different topics available for conversation, followed by small-group Talanoa dialogues where participants will be able to exchange perspectives and thoughts. This will be followed by an interfaith spiritual service and a light shared meal for those attending in person. 

The plenary and interfaith service will be live-streamed on Youtube. 

To also participate in small-group discussions, please register on Zoom registration.
