Greenfaith Global Day of Action

Hundreds of people of diverse religions are organizing for the biggest multi-faith day of climate action the world has ever seen - on March 11, 2021. It’s called Sacred People, Sacred Earth.

Without powerful moral pressure behind a bold, just, audacious vision, the world doesn’t have a prayer of meeting the threats posed by the climate emergency.  That’s why with partners around the world, we’ve launched a new global multi-faith community - the GreenFaith International Network.  

We’re not wasting a second. Hundreds of people of diverse religions are organizing for the biggest multi-faith day of climate action the world has ever seen - on March 11, 2021. It’s called Sacred People, Sacred Earth.

We want you on our team for this big dayShow your leadership: endorse the Sacred People, Sacred Earth Statement and sign up to take part in the Day of Action. We’ll be organizing a series of events to build momentum towards the big day. You won’t want to miss out.

On Wednesday 18 November 2020, on six TEDx events around the world, more than 1,000 people of diverse religions kicked off mobilizing for the Sacred People, Sacred Earth Day of Action.

It was incredible. People of different creeds, geographies, races and generations passionately united for climate justice. Singing, praying, learning together - and committing to action. It was powerful.

One participant said, “I was so moved - this was the best call I’ve ever been on.”

Another participant: “I love the boldness of the demands. Great to see a multi-faith group stepping up to face the climate emergency head-on.”

Within 15 minutes after the end of the calls, we had 350 sites signed up to host events in North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe.

Your support is the difference-maker for this mass mobilization. Will you sign on and join us now?

Political and financial leaders listen to numbers - especially when they’re big. That’s why we’re going to get thousands of places of prayer and worship to come together on March 11. Then, we’ll continue to build moral power in support of a bold set of demands - like ensuring that every single person has access to clean energy, no more financing for fossil fuels and industrial agriculture, and a just transition for workers and communities impacted by climate and the energy transition.

Climate change is an emergency. We have a plan to organize diverse religious groups at the grassroots at an entirely new scale in response. We need you to be part of this and we hope you’ll sign on today.
