An Interfaith Climate Vigil
of Solidarity, Prayer and Hope
Paris Climate Talks
The United Nations global climate talks will convene in Paris, November 30 to December 11, 2015. World leaders are expected to adopt a new protocol to reduce global carbon emissions, replacing the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Leaders will also consider how to help the world’s poorest, developing countries adapt to climate change.
Our leaders need to see grassroots support for climate action, which is what the IEN Interfaith Climate Vigil is all about! Other cities throughout Texas will also hold Climate Vigils that evening.
The program begins with local faith leaders sharing and reflecting upon the proclamations that their individual traditions and religious bodies have made regarding climate change and protection of the environment.
We will also participate in an exclusive, LIVE VIDEO FEED from the Paris Climate Talks, featuring Bee Moorhead and Yaira Robinson of Texas Impact and Texas Interfaith Power and Light.
Our evening will wrap up with a chance for attendees to brainstorm next steps and future initiatives.
