COP21 Pilgrims Cultivate Stewardship in Walk to Paris

By path2positive

From Lourdes to Hajj, the religious pilgrimage is a staple of all faith traditions. Intended to insight and cultivate a spiritual awakening, the arduous journeys are often conducted with the intention of evoking a change in behavior, moral prosperity and social justice. For this reason thousands are using COP21 as an opportunity to transform the way we think about climate change.

Christian pilgrims from all over the world are planning to walk or bicycle to UNFCCC's COP21 meeting in Paris, France this December to raise awareness for creation care. While their gesture is beautiful, it is not the only way to show your support for the proceedings. Consider hosting a creation care event during the Paris talks at your local congregation with these helpful guides from Blessed Tomorrow.


Pilgrims of Climate Justice Plan to Impact COP 21 in Paris

From World Council of Churches

Thousands of people are planning to embark on a pilgrimage of climate justice – either on foot or on bicycles – in many parts of the world. 

These faithful pilgrims, rooted in their religious beliefs, want to express solidarity with those affected by climate change – urging world leaders to produce a legally binding and universal agreement on the climate at the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris.

These pilgrims, mostly from Europe and Africa, are mobilized by Christian organizations representing members of the World Council of Churches (WCC). Some will end their journey in Paris, uniting their voices with other faith actors at the COP 21 to be held from 30 November to 11 December 2015.
