This year, for the first time since 1991, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Baha’is, Hindus, Buddhists and Indigenous nations observed holy days in the same month as Earth Day. Many religious people are actively living out their faith through climate action. I had the honor of talking with two other women who are leading on climate in their communities of faith. 

Nana Firman is a Muslim who directed WWF-Indonesia’s “Green Reconstruction” efforts during a post-tsunami period and developed an urban climate change adaptation and mitigation initiative. An internationally recognized speaker, she is one of 20 Earth Defenders featured in One Earth: People of Color Protecting Our Planet. She is GreenFaith’s Senior Ambassador and a leader of the Green Mosque Initiative. 

Dahlia Rockowitz is an experienced Jewish advocate, organizer, and educator interested in the intersections of environmental, social and racial justice. She is the Director of Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action in Washington, D.C. and has worked as a Climate Training Senior Manager for The Climate Reality Project and as a policy advisor for American Jewish World Service. 

Watch this webcast to learn how our climate work is connected to how we live out our faiths, and what texts in the Quran, Torah, and Bible inspire us. Hear about how we honor holy days through climate action on this Let’s Talk Climate episode. Click below to watch now!
