Live from COP27 in Egypt
MNIPL’s Analyah Schlaeger dos Santos is attending the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. She joins a global community of young people who are bringing a moral and fervent voice to these proceedings.
This is the first COP held on the African continent since 2016, and the first with substantive conversations about loss and damage on the agenda. The questions are not just about financially measured losses from climate change, but how do we in the global north bear responsibility and repair the harm from loss of life, loss of culture, loss of indigenous land.
Of urgent concern is supporting the creation of a public and grant funded finance facility. The global majority is clamoring for this democratically rooted funding mechanism. We have been working hard to make sure the US makes this happen in 2022
At this webinar on November 16, hear first-hand accounts live from Egypt. Learn what’s happening on the ground, what communities of faith and conscience are doing, and ways you can be engaged with this global human rights issue.
MNIPL’s Julia Nerbonne will join Analyah in leading this webinar. Invited guests include Rev. Susannah Tuttle, a Community Liaison for the US Climate Action Network’s Fair Share and Executive Director of North Carolina IPL; Rev. Michael Malcom, Executive Director of The People’s Justice Council and Alabama IPL; Brandon Wu, Director of Policy and Campaigns at Action Aid; Rev. Leo Woodbury, a pastor in South Carolina and climate activist; Tiffany Fant, Program Manager for Taproot Noire; and Rev. Dallas Conyers, the Faith and JEDI manager for the Southeast Climate & Energy Network.
