In 2022, the Conference of Parties (COP27) gather global leaders and civil society in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. WCC is present through various church representatives advocating for Climate Justice.


Organized by the Geneva Interfaith Forum on Climate Change, Environment and Human Rights, the event will offer an opportunity for faith-based groups to reflect and evaluate their involvement in the COP27 process, in order to better prepare for the COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 30 November-12 December 2023. 

From a human rights perspective, participants will explore how they can be even more engaged in the climate negotiation process to bring a perspective on faith and compassion in order to inspire and encourage decision-makers to include human beings, Mother Earth, and other beings in their consideration. 

During the COP27 in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, a significant number of faith-based organisations were mobilised to participate both in the negotiation process, as well as in raising public awareness on the importance of having an ambitious target for climate actions, as mandated by the Paris Agreement. 

This event will take a look back COP27 with an eye toward an even stronger engagement in COP28.
