The world’s largest climate change negotiations – COP28 - are about to take place in Dubai.
The Anglican Communion will have a presence there, articulating hope, justice and the voice of those most vulnerable.
Anglicans are mobilising for environmental justice around the world. Join them in promoting our calls to action in your country:
The Anglican Communion has permanent representation at the United Nations, raising the Church’s voice on issues of justice, conflict, care of creation and more throughout the year. At major events like COP, a small group from the Communion join together to strengthen our advocacy and action. This group is decided collaboratively with our hosts, the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, the Anglican Communion Environment Network, the Anglican Indigenous Network, the Anglican Youth Network and the Anglican Alliance. This year’s delegation includes:
They will be supported by Martha Jarvis, Permanent Representative to the United Nations; Joel Kelling, Regional Facilitator for Anglican Alliance; Revd Canon Dr Don Binder, Chaplain to the Archbishop of Jerusalem and the Middle East.
Anglican representatives will meet with representatives of states, business, investors, NGOs and faith groups to share our calls to action and listen to where change is possible on climate issues. We will pray and worship with other Christians gathered for COP and from across the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. We will also host a series of events exploring why our calls to action matter, sharing examples of Anglican action from around the world – including panel discussions about justice with top business leaders; dialogue with young indigenous leaders; gathering young adults to hear their views; convening conversations between faith leaders on the day’s ‘hot topics’.
