The recorded message, produced by the Pan-Amazonian Church Network, or REPAM, was released during the U.N. conference, known as COP26, in Glasgow, Scotland. International representatives at the conference are discussing roads to a sustainable ecology, reduction of greenhouse gases and solutions to mitigate the negative effects of climate change on the world's populations.
