From Paris to New York: A People's Vigil for Preventing Climate Change

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2015
7 PM – 9 PM, CATHEDRAL

The United Nations Climate Change Conference COP21 (also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference) takes place this year from November 30th through December 11th. It will, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate from all 195 participating nations.

To raise our voices in favor of a bold, forward-looking agreement in accord with the economic resources and historical carbon emissions of the developed and developing world, the Cathedral and Cathedral partner Food & Water Watch will host a vigil on December 9th.

It is our children and grandchildren who will inherit the world we are now creating—one of hunger and abundance, climate uncertainty and technological advance, cooperation and conflict. It behooves us to do what we can to make sure the planet is on a sustainable path, and, as New Yorkers, to assess our role in the midst of all this change.

Please come. Invite your families and loved ones.
