Faith-based groups are becoming more visible in their concern over the climate, and last week’s Muslim World League conference in Saudi Arabia provides the latest example of how leaders from various traditions are working together to call for action.
The Muslim World League, the largest Islamic NGO, hosted the event in Riyadh. More than 100 faith leaders attended, including the Grand Mufti of Egypt, the chairman of the Hindu Dharam Acharya Sabha in India, the head of the World Evangelical Alliance based in Germany, and the Chief Rabbi of Rome — one of more than 15 rabbis from various nations.
