Special Webinar to Explore the Role of “Faiths for a Just Energy Transition”

September 21, 2022

On Wednesday, September 28th the Parliament of the World’s Religions joins colleagues at GreenFaith for the Faiths for a Just Energy Transition – a 2-hour webinar, hosted by the Catholic University of East Africa in collaboration with the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims and Laudato Si’ Movement.

Participants will learn the basis for the three commitments that religious groups are calling for around the globe – an immediate end to new fossil fuel projects, an equitable phase-out of coal, oil and gas, and a generous commitment to a just transition for impacted communities and workers.

Speakers from diverse religious communities will share reflections from the heart of their traditions, while experts will describe why the three commitments are so important.

Awareness always precedes action. That is why we invite you to join us on 28 September for a unique, international, multi-faith learning experience, with translation available in English, Spanish, French, German, Swahili.
