The Green Sacred Space Awards recognize and showcase faith organizations that have demonstrated initiative and commitment to protecting God's creations. These awards provide the opportunity for diverse faith traditions to come together sharing their environmental stewardship initiatives and actions. This year we are welcoming Stacey Laforme who is the elected Chief of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. We are very excited to hear him speak and can not wait for the event!
Thousands of religious and civic leaders assembling to address the critical global issues of peace, justice, and sustainability. 10,000+ people, 200+ Spiritual Traditions, 80+ Nations
While climate actions by our own faith communities are crucial, we can’t lose sight of the fact that climate destabilization can only be halted when we act collectively. That is why the Parliament of World Religion’s international convening in Toronto next November 1-7, with an expected attendance of over 10,000, presents such an amazing opportunity for Canadian faith communities to share their stories, to learn from each other, and ultimately, to join together with other faith and spiritual communities from around the world to build a more sustainable world.
Faith & the Common Good has joined the Parliament’s Climate Action Task Force (CATF) to work with global partners to ensure that climate change will be a major topic of the Toronto Parliament. We expect to have as many as 100 diverse programs on climate and related environmental issues, as well as a hospitality room, a resource centre, booths in the exhibit hall, and the 3-hour Climate Assembly from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 4.
We invite you to participate in this incredible event in any way you can.
