UN Climate Change Conference: A Faithful Response
MNIPL’s Executive Director, Julia Nerbonne; Youth Program Coordinator, Analyah Schlaeger dos Santos; and Board member, Ruhel Islam are traveling to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. They join a global community of people of faith and conscience who are bringing a moral voice to these proceedings.
At this webinar on November 9, we’ll hear first-hand accounts from these Climate Talks. We’ll also be guided by the wisdom of two people who are deeply immersed in the issue of climate fair share: Susannah Tuttle is a Community Liaison for the US Climate Action Network’s Fair Share and Executive Director of North Carolina Interfaith Power & Light; Rev. Michael Malcom is Executive Director of The People’s Justice Council and Alabama Interfaith Power & Light.
Some of the central questions at the Climate Talks will grapple with the responsibilities of government, businesses, and civil society around climate change — and who is responsible for paying for climate damage and loss. With the United States not even close to meeting its climate goals, how can people of faith create pressure that will give US leaders the political will to pay our fair share and take equitable climate action? It is vital that faith communities in the US hear the stories of people’s climate experiences from around the world, especially when we recognize that climate security is a human right.
This is an MNIPL Community Connector webinar, and all are welcome! On the 1st Tuesday of each month, we deepen into a different topic related to climate justice. Through shared learning and conversation, we hope you can feel more confident and empowered to help grow the climate movement. Whether it’s with a community of faith or spiritual practice, neighborhood group, circle of friends, etc., we are all community connectors!
NOTE: Because November 2 is Election Day, and we wanted to report live from Glasgow, we’ve moved this month’s webinar to the 2nd Tuesday.
