Week Two of UN Climate Talks (COP 25) in Madrid

Dialogue continues among countries as the COP 25 in Madrid.

Faith communities created a statement on climate justice. PC(USA) is one of many signers. Read the Interfaith Declaration on Climate Change for COP25 Madrid 2019.

One source for coverage of official events as well as side events is the Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) produced by the International Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD). A recent piece captured PC(USA) delegation member Bill Somplatsky-Jarman at last weekend’s commemoration of environmental martyrs (standing to the right of the speaker).
