Organized by the World Council of Churches (WCC), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities (JLI), the webinar will provide an update on the 9 May 2022 statement on Climate-Responsible Finance and commitments made on the five calls to action.

The webinar aims to build capacity for engagement with financial institutions to stop carbon bombs. The event will ensure youth participation and highlight the consequences of fossil fuel financing on young people’s mental health, with a focus on one of the most powerful ways to address root-causes.

The objectives of the webinar are to increase awareness of how investments into new fossil fuel expansion imperil the wellbeing of children, youth and future generations, as well as to advance actions of faith-based actors, their partners and constituents, holding accountable those investing in fossil fuels.

The event will illustrate how climate-responsible banking can help to tackle root-causes of desertification, and serve as a milestone towards the UN Summit of the Future.
