End Ecocide Sweden together with Stop Ecocide International and the working group on Climate and Sustainable Development of the Christian Council of Sweden, is inviting you to the launch of Faith for Ecocide Law: an international, interreligious coalition for Ecocide as an international crime. The initiative aims at gathering religious and spiritual leaders and influential voices to express support for Ecocide law and spread awareness about the issue towards upcoming UN meetings on biodiversity (COP 15, Kunming, October), climate (COP 26, Glasgow, November) and especially Stockholm+50, June 2022, with the thematic focus on how we can redefine our relationship to nature.
The launch of Faith for Ecocide Law will be September 16 in the online conference Interfaith Call for Ecocide Law. Please help us invite to this event! (documentation from invitation webinar below).
– The ecological crisis is an existential crisis, says Pella Thiel, chairperson of of End Ecocide Sweden. The need for a transformation of society towards sustainabilty is becoming increasingly clear, and ecocide law is a much needed step to support such a transformation. Religious and spiritual leaders have great potential to contribute to a more peaceful relationship between humanity and the Creation, Mother Earth.
– For me, it would be a great support to be able to refer to an ecocide law, says the Swedish Catholic Cardinal Anders Arborelius. All states and companies would have to respect it, and the law would be something the world had agreed on.
