According to the UN, "Climate change is the defining issue of our time and now is the defining moment to do something about it. There is still time to tackle climate change, but it will require an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society. To boost ambition and accelerate actions to implement the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit on 23 September in New York City to meet the climate challenge. . . The Summit will bring together governments, the private sector, civil society, local authorities and other international organizations to develop ambitious solutions in six areas: a global transition to renewable energy; sustainable and resilient infrastructures and cities; sustainable agriculture and management of forests and oceans; resilience and adaptation to climate impacts; and alignment of public and private finance with a net zero economy."
As a Renew Our World member organisation, we care deeply about the climate and caring for the planet. The UN Secretary General has invited world leaders to New York to boost urgent action on climate change to turn the Paris Agreement into reality. The UN Climate Summit is a potential turning point for the future of the climate and we want to pray that the positive impact of the decisions made on the 23rd of September are felt around the world.
Join us as we lift up this summit and our leaders in prayer. As we pray for the future of our earth, we will also have a time of worship to celebrate and glorify God's creation, led by Dublin's Ryan Ashley.
