We have faith petition - COP17


Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu signs the We Have Faith -- Act Now petition for climate justice. With this petition, faith communities across Africa are calling for climate justice -- that is, for a fair, ambitious and binding agreement in the climate change negotiations (COP17) that will be conducted by governments meeting in Durban in December under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Climate justice means that those countries that have benefited the most from the climate-damaging carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels should be making the greatest efforts to remedy the problem. Yet at the moment, it is developing countries which are making the greatest efforts to cut carbon while also being most vulnerable to climate change. Climate change is not a future problem -- it is already bringing droughts, flooding, hunger, conflict and increased migration to Africa.

Archbishop Tutu and other faith leaders will lead a great multifaith rally in Durban on 27 November at Kings Park Stadium. The following weekend, 4 December, will see congregations and communities across Africa meeting and praying that climate negotiators and citizens alike will take full responsibility for the changes we all need to make -- and that COP17 will be conducted with the unflinching moral courage the crisis demands.
