Community Event: UN Day Forum – Taking Action on Climate Change

You are cordially invited to attend this free webinar: UN DAY FORUM: TAKING ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24, UNITED NATIONS DAY // 4-5:30pm

Regional UU Congregations and the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area are cosponsoring a timely Webinar  on Sunday, October 24 to share insights from a range of leading experts on what we can do as individuals and faith-based organizations locally and nationally to meet the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement.

This program will provide an update on the preparations of the Biden Administration for COP26, the UN Change Change conference taking place in Glasgow in November, and, importantly, the role of civil society in achieving the targets of the Paris Agreement. Recognizing the inequitable impact of climate change on poor and minority communities, the program will explore ways in which faith-based organizations and individuals can work together to meet the ambitious climate goals equitably and justly.

  • Nate Hultman, Founder and Director of the University of Maryland Center for Global Sustainability on detail to Envoy Kerry’s office at State Dept (also Board Chair of Cedar Lane UU Church) will moderate a panel of activists, including:
