Building the Divest Invest Movement with Faiths, Foundations and Finance & Official Handover of COP22 Faith Leaders Statement

 

COP 22 Side Event - Nov 10th - Sebou, Green Zone  from 1.00-2.30 pm

 

A call to action to faith, foundations and finance to commit to fossil fuel divestment and increase investments in clean energy.  

We will discuss both the moral and financial imperative to divest invest to keep the world within 1.5 degrees of warming and explore how faith, foundation and finance communities in both the Global North and South can collaborate to increase commitments to Divest Invest and create the financial products that will make it possible to move capital from dirty to clean and sustainable energy.

Divest Invest leaders from faith, foundations and finance will make the case for urgent action, presenting on risks and opportunities, and relevant case studies. 

 

During the event faith leaders from the world will present a multi-faith statement with from faith communities, people of faith and people without religious denomination from around the world that calls states and investors to move quickly beyond fossil fuels and build an energy system that is fair and clean for all.

 The COP22 Statement follows on from the April 2016 Interfaith Statement that was signed by 270 faith leaders and presented to the President of the UN General Assembly. The drafting and dissemination of the COP22 Statement and the related handover event is a joint collaboration with representatives from more than 30 faith-based organisations from across the world. The COP22 President has been invited to receive the COP22 Statement on 10 November 2016. A media conference will immediately follow the handover event.

In addition to the Statement collaborators, this side-event has also been organised in partnership with the Climate Change Collaboration and the Wallace Global Fund.
