The UN Climate Change Conference ‘COP 24’ opened today, 3 December in Katowice, Poland.
This two-week climate change conference has been called ‘Paris 2.0’ meaning that it is both the most significant Climate Change conference since the Paris Agreement in 2015 and that this is the time when participants will put together the pieces, directions and guidelines in order to make the framework really operate.
‘to Gaze on the Mystery of our evolving changing universe’ means that we are committed to personal and congregation action to addressing climate change.
There are three ways to follow the conference:
1. Join the UN News Climate Change mailing list to receive COP24 daily highlights
2. Follow #ClimateAction on Twitter, and the handles: @UN, @UN_News_Centre, @GlobalGoalsUN, and @UNFCCC
3. Follow COP24 coverage by UN News in eight languages
We invite you to join us in prayer for the success of COP24, perhaps by using the ‘Prayer for Our Earth’ from Laudato Si’ by Pope Francis.
