Care for creation and climate justice: WCC at COP28

The 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is taking place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 November – 12 December. This significant global event is bringing together leaders, policymakers, scientists, and advocates worldwide to address the pressing issues of climate change and chart a path toward a sustainable and resilient future.  

Following up on a long history of engagement on climate justice in UN climate conferences, the participation of the WCC delegation at COP28, led by WCC general secretary Rev. Prof Dr Jerry Pillay, and formed by representatives of WCC member churches, and WCC staff members, is also an opportunity for WCC to express its concerns about the climate emergency, raising its prophetic voice and bringing to light good practices and strong testimonies from voices of the ecumenical fellowship. Equally important is the opportunity to add spiritual dimensions to the topic and underline the need for scientific and religious aspects to cope with climate change and promote climate justice.
