Join with Faith Leaders around the world in the COP21 Thunderclap
The World Council of Churches, the Lutheran World
Federation, ACT Alliance, OurVoices, the Global Catholic Climate Movement, the
Fast for the Climate and other faith groups are working closely together on
climate change advocacy around COP21 in Paris.
On the 28th of November, pilgrimages will arrive in Paris
from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, the United Kingdom, Rome, The
Philippines and from across Africa. Ecumenical and multi-faith celebrations
will be held to make our voices heard.
Please join with all people of faith in calling for a fair, ambitious
and binding agreement at COP21.
To spread the message via social media, these faith
groups are planning a “thunderclap” to
push negotiators at COP21 to do the smart thing by doing the right thing. Our message is: "Global faith groups
call for a binding agreement at the UN climate talks
The way Thunderclaps work is that many people sign up, and
the Thunderclap system will release the message on behalf of everyone who signs
up on their Twitter and Facebook accounts at exactly the same time. Because all the messages go live at exactly
the same time, there is much more chance of it Trending and becoming very
visible. This will go live at 10am French time on 28th of November, the day
that faith groups are planning various activities just before COP21.
