COP26 is an opportunity like no other. World leaders will make decisions that will affect our common home for generations.
Everyone, no matter religion, country, or race, should respect creation. We are running out of time, and there's a lot to do. It's not easy to make this huge change, but we need to start somewhere. Why not sign and promote the petition?
By now more than 100,000 Catholics and 300 organizations have joined this initiative.
We are asking four simple things:
Tackle the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis together
Limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and promise no more biodiversity loss
Ensure equitable global action, including support for those most affected
Protect and respect human rights, including the rights of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in climate and biodiversity action
Pope Francis will be there. For the first time, a Pope is attending a UN Climate Change Conference. That’s how important this is. Support Pope Francis: Sign the petition.
As Catholics, it is our responsibility to lift up the voices of the most vulnerable and advocate on their behalf. If we don’t, who will? It’s truly up to us. We must act now. Sign the petition.
God’s creation is suffering. And we’re running out of time. Join the global Catholic family and take action now.
