CIDSE's collective blog during Paris COP 21
Far more than 5000 pilgrims have already walked our pilgrim’s route which goes from the Danish-German border to Paris – why? Is it really worth walking almost 1500km in view of the latest terrible attacks in Paris? All our pilgrims agree: Yes, it is!
All over the world, people from churches and other religions have been moved to take action for an effective and equitable climate policy, under headings such as Act now for climate justice, We have faith, Bringing faith to the climate talks, Geht doch in Germany and Make 2015 the year of hope here in the Netherlands. Literally moved, by the way, because increasingly these actions are taking on the form of pilgrimages, whether by foot or bicycle.
CIDSE and Caritas Internationalis have organised a high-level dialogue at the United Nations to make sure the faith voice rings out strong and clear in the run-up to the Paris COP21 climate summit in November
