United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has noted that the coronavirus pandemic is more than a health crisis. It is a human crisis which is attacking societies at their core.
To tackle it, policymakers will need the support of scientists, experts, and society at large, including religious leaders, scholars, and communities.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is partnering with others, within and outside the United Nations, to get people, including adherents of the world’s religions, to revisit our relationship with nature and rebuild a more environmentally responsible world.
UNEP’s Faith for Earth initiative is a partnership with faith-based organizations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and on 4 May it joined forces with the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology.
“We have agreed with the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology to unite our efforts and strengthen environmental advocacy, building on the Forum’s extensive work over the past two decades,” says Iyad Abumoghli, Principal Coordinator of Faith for Earth.
