Faith for Earth Dialogue at UNEA Highlights Parliament’s Interfaith Climate Action

March 9, 2022

Faith for Earth invited all stakeholders to participate in the Faith for Earth Dialogue that was held as part of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 5.2), the highest global authority responsible for the environmental component of sustainable development.

The dialogue sessions were held between 21 February to 4 March 2022 and alongside UNEA 5.2, on the theme of “Strengthening Actions for Nature to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals”.

Faith for Earth reports that the dialogue featured 24 sessions, 94 faith-based organizations, and 650 registered participants representing 53 religions and spiritual traditions.

The Parliament of the World’s Religions, a partner of the UN Faith for Earth Initiative, was an active participant in the dialogue which highlighted the great work carried out by the Parliament’s Climate Action Task Force and the Interfaith Climate Action Program. The Dialogue featured the premiere of a video version of the Visual Statement, presented at the 2021 Parliament Convening last year. The video and relevant panel recordings are available on YouTube.
