Parliament Climate Action Reps Join UNEP Global Dialogue

September 22, 2020

On Thursday, August 27th Parliament Trustee, Michael Terrien, and Climate Action Task Force member, Kusumita Pedersen, joined the United Nations Environment Programme’s Faith for Earth Initiative for a global dialogue with around 128 faith leaders, representing 12 religions, 131 organizations from 37 countries and included interfaith practitioners, scientists and scholars in a discovery session to discuss the United Nations Environment Programme’s 2021-2025 mid-term strategy.
The participants were divided into 10 groups and discussed three important questions:
1) What changes do you see necessary to enable transformational shifts towards more sustainable outcomes?
2) What would you expect from an organization like UNEP to contribute to that shift?
3) How could your organization work with UNEP to contribute to that shift?
Other contributions were made in writing and were submitted to the strategy team of UNEP. A short report of the findings and recommendations of this discovery session will be shared shortly with all. Thank you for all your pouring support and blessings. Those are our renewable source of energy to continue serving you to the best of our ability. Learn more on this and other related UNEP initiatives on the latest Faith for Earth newsletter.
