Are Religious Leaders Rising to the Climate Challenge?

The Commonwealth Jewish Council recognises that religion is one of the most potent and motivating forces in human society. Unfortunately, far too often the power of religious communities is overlooked in international affairs and only perceived as a source of trouble rather than idealistic action for the good of Humankind. If religions and their leaders are not on board with the need to address climate change, arguably, huge proportions of the world’s population will not be moved to take the matter seriously.

This panel will explore not only what religions have to say about the topic but, more importantly, what religions are doing and can do to improve the world on this front.

Panellists:
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth
The Rt. Revd Olivia Graham, Bishop of Reading
Chief Imam Sayed Ali Abbas Razawi, Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society
Chaired by CEO of the CJC Clive Lawton OBE JP
