Online Climate Seminar - Asia-Pacific Women of Faith
Inspired By Our Faiths and Spiritualities to Move Forward with Climate Action
As Women of Faith from the Asia Pacific region, we are increasingly aware of the serious threat that escalating climate change poses to our families, communities, and countries. Our concept is to share ideas, hopes, and practical proposals that will enable us to make beneficial contributions aligned with our faiths.
➤ Developing a clear understanding of how multireligious actors can take a range of actions that can leverage positive influence to address climate change challenges across our region.
➤ Strengthening bonds of familiarity, trust, and active engagement between diverse faith leaders, and between religious and secular policymakers and the experts on climate change.
➤ Building a religious network for specific activities (and learning exchanges) related to climate change.
