World leaders gathered in Canada in December for the Conference of the Parties, COP 15, on biodiversity and recently gathered in Egypt for the United Nations Conference of the Parties, COP 27, on climate change.
These two meetings present another opportunity for world leaders to agree on actions which will address the twin crises of climate change and loss of biodiversity. They also present us with an opportunity as people of faith to join with others in calling for effective action to deal with these immense ecological crises.
