The future of our planet hangs in the balance. Interfaith Scotland and Interfaith Glasgow, with the Scottish Religious Leaders’ Forum, invite you – at this critical moment – to join people of all religions and none in expressing your love for life on earth and the shared hope that COP26 will commit leaders to the actions necessary to save it!
Witness religious leaders and faith community members coming together in Glasgow’s main square, united in a common commitment to climate justice, to mark the beginning of COP26 and to launch Scottish Interfaith Week, which shares the COP26 theme: ‘Together for Our Planet’. This unique prayer and meditation vigil will bring together people of all backgrounds in Glasgow and – via a livestream – around the world, in a powerful, symbolic act of unity and solidarity for our planet. To join the vigil in person, don’t forget to book your ticket on Eventbrite.
Speak up for Climate Justice: Sign the Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26
We have taken the step of using the organisation change.org to offer everyone the opportunity to sign ‘The Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26‘. This declaration has been carefully crafted by representatives of the Scottish Religious Leaders’ Forum along with faith representatives from the United Kingdom. It has initially been signed by a widely diverse range of Scottish and UK wide religious communities and signatures are now being sought from faith communities, local interfaith groups and people of faith from across the UK and indeed globally. We hope to garner thousands of signatures to the petition to present at the COP26 Climate Summit and if you feel you are able to sign it, please do include which faith you belong to (if appropriate).
