The Pope delivered his support for community mobilisations on the final day of a climate change summit hosted by the Vatican that aims to put his landmark environmental encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ into action by ‘inspiring a “massive movement” for the care of our imperilled common planetary home’.
The Summit, entitled ‘Saving Our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth’, is being attended by faith leaders, youth activists, leading scientists, frontline community representatives and senior political figures. These participants have already delivered resounding demands to keep fossil fuels in the ground and accelerate the just transition to 100% renewable energy, now the Pope’s call to action has put the importance of people power firmly in the spotlight.
