Meet the UU Advocates at the UN Climate Talks
For many, the COP24 Climate Summit is the most important climate negotiation since the Paris Agreement. This year’s summit asks countries to agree on the rules for turning the vision of the Paris Agreement into a reality and to set stronger climate action in motion.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and UU Service Committee (UUSC) begin their advocacy today at the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UUA has been active as an observer organization and faith advocate for ambitious and just climate action at the UNFCCC climate talks every year since 2015 when the Paris Agreement was established.
Unitarian Universalists are one voice among a strong Interfaith presence at the UN climate talks that will be engaging in worship, dialogue, and faith-based advocacy for ambitious and morally grounded climate commitments.
