Join the Parliament for Strategic Conversation on “Preserving Life on Land”

July 8, 2022

On Monday, July 11th the Parliament of the World’s Religions joins the Episcopal Church, IRI Colombia, and the World Council of Churches for a parallel event on the margins of the UN High-Level Political Forum on the SDG’s discussion on Goal 15: Life on Land.

From 1:00-2:30 EDT join us for Preserving Life on Land: Plans, projects, pitfalls and partnerships for rainforest preservation, an informal strategic conversation hosted via Zoom. The conversation will be hosted in English with Spanish interpretation and will feature Parliament Trustee, Lewis Cardinal.

The 2022 UN High-Level Political Forum will be held from Tuesday, 5 July, to Thursday, 7 July, and from Monday, 11 July, to Friday, 15 July 2022, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council. The theme for the 2022 HLPF is “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

HLPF will reflect on how recovery policies can reverse the negative impacts of the pandemic on the SDGs and move countries on to a path to realize the vision of the 2030 Agenda. The HLPF will also review in-depth Sustainable Development Goals 4 on quality education, 5 on gender equality, 14 on life below water, 15 on life on land, and 17 on partnerships for the Goals. It will take into account the different impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across all Sustainable Development Goals and the integrated, indivisible and interlinked nature of the Goals.
