POPE FRANCIS and dozens of religious leaders signed a joint appeal today urging governments to commit to ambitious targets at the upcoming Cop26 climate conference while promising to do their own part to lead their faithful into more sustainable behaviour.
“We have inherited a garden; we must not leave a desert to our children,” said the appeal, which was signed at a formal ceremony in the Apostolic Palace before being handed over to the head of the Cop26 conference, Alok Sharma.
Faith and Science: An Appeal for Cop26 is the latest initiative to rally momentum ahead of the Glasgow summit, which experts say is a make-or-break chance to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
The campaign follows an earlier appeal by three Christian leaders: Francis, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and the spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I.
They were joined today by leaders of other major faith groups representing Sunni and Shi’ite Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Jainism, Sikhism and more.
