A kairos moment of COP26 when an international group of Catholic artists, activists and academics will reflect on climate justice and the integrity of creation in prayerful anticipation of a world-wide change of heart and a renewed commitment by all nations to nurture planet earth and all that exists on it.

Climate injustice begets conflict and violence. Such tensions are heightened during public health emergencies such as the covid-19 pandemic. Uruguayan lawyer and human rights activist Carmen Moreno discusses these linkages in her presentation, while University of Glasgow academic Anna Blackman looks to the possibilities of grassroots acts of creative non-violence in a world of escalating conflict and militarism. Dr Carlos Zepeda, of the Laudato Si’ Research Institute, Oxford University discusses the importance of local faith actors in the climate response and how collaborative networks of grassroots civil society organisations such as the Ecclesial Networks Alliance can raise the visibility of marginalized communities and magnify their campaigning voice.

The event will be chaired by Marian Pallister, chair of Pax Christi Scotland.
