Join us to launch Sacred People, Sacred Earth
RSVP for a series of TEDx talks on November 17 & 18
At Faith & the Common Good (FGC), our Green Rule is “Do unto the Earth, as you would have it do unto you.” Across all religions and spiritual philosophies, the teachings are clear: we must take care of one another, and of Creation, because the Earth and all living beings and species are sacred.
But all life on Earth is now at risk.
On Tuesday, November 17 at 8:30 pm ET, join Faith & the Common Good and our US partners at GreenFaith for a global TEDx event to kick off mobilizing Sacred People, Sacred Earth – the biggest-ever grassroots, global, multi-faith, COVID-friendly climate action that will take place on March 11. This is part of Countdown – a special TEDx platform for climate action!
Globally, human-made, climate-fueled disasters such as droughts, floods, fires, and hurricanes are displacing and impoverishing millions of people; climate breakdown is contributing to the sixth mass extinction of species. The pandemic is worsening these impacts on the most vulnerable communities.
That’s why diverse, grassroots people of faith and conscience are coming together to demand real solutions and to lead by example. No more fossil fuel infrastructure, tropical deforestation or related financing. 100% renewable energy for everyone - particularly the 800 million people who lack access to electricity. We insist on the creation of green jobs to rebuild the world’s infrastructure and to help everyday people recover from the COVID depression and build healthy, resilient communities.
Faith & the Common Good is proud to be among the founding grassroots partners in 14 countries coming together as the GreenFaith International Network to kick off this new era of global, multi-faith climate action. In a global series of multi-faith TEDx events, we will be announcing a bold, worldwide set of demands and plans in preparation for the biggest ever faith-based global day of action on March 11 where we’ll sound the alarm for climate justice.
Join us on Tuesday, November 17 at 8:30 pm. Together we can build an unstoppable, global, grassroots, multi-faith movement.
Please extend this invitation to your networks.
