Faith and Climate Webinar Series


The Security and Sustainability Forum is pleased to announce the Faith and Climate Webinar Series in partnership with the Parliament of the World's Religions (PWR).

Beginning in June, 2019, the series will bring together faith leaders and climate activists from all sectors and faiths to address our urgent and collective responsibility to act on behalf of all humanity, future generations, and the natural world to change the catastrophic impact we are having on the planet.

The initial two webinars in the series will address (1) The youth climate lawsuit, Juliana vs. the U.S. and (2) The Pope's second encyclical on care for the planet.
