His Holiness Radhanath Swami

His Holiness Radhanath Swami, International Society for Krishna Consciousness

The Earth is our mother and her natural resources are sacred; they are God’s energy and how we respect and utilize them is what will determine the fate of the world. The solution to current environmental concerns is to change our consciousness from exploiting the earth for our own purposes to protecting and honoring the earth for God’s purposes. ”

Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar, Director of Programmes, Schumacher College, Editor Resurgence magazine “ If the outer environment is impure, you cannot have your inner environment pure; because outer and inner are 2 sides of the same coin. In order to achieve inner pureness you also need outer purity. Move from pollution to solution and trust the universe. At the moment, we live as if nature is a resource for economic growth, but nature is the central source of life. The moral dimension of climate change must address our greed and fear, and move us towards living in harmony with the natural world. ”

Yeb Sano

Yeb Sano, Philippine Climate Change Commissioner, representative for the Philippines at the UNFCCC talks “ As we search for answers and reflect on the climate crisis, and make sense of the challenges we face, it is all part of a spiritual journey – one that leads to simply making this world a better place for all of us. Please join us as we walk this journey by signing up to ourvoices.net and send the message across to world leaders. ”

Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati

Let us appeal to all levels of governance for polices that mean sustainable action and brighter futures. Today, let your own individual actions be heroic. Let your deeds be historic. Today, change must begin with you, so that there may quite simply be a tomorrow for all. ”

Dharma Master Hsin Tao

Dharma Master Hsin Tao: Founder of Museum of World Religions, the President of the Global Family for Love and Peace, and the founder of the Ling Jiou Mountain Wu-Sheng Monastery in Taiwan “ “We have treated the Earth according to our own whims for such a long time that we have destroyed its ecological balance. If we cannot live in harmony with nature, our lives and our homes are under serious threat. Climate change is causing an endless string of natural disasters around the world and makes us face very serious challenges. This is the time for us to face them together!” ”

Archbishop Socrates​ B.​ Villegas

Rabbi Lawrence Troster

Rabbi Lawrence Troster, Founder and Coordinator, Shomrei Breishit: Rabbis and Cantors For the Earth; Rabbinic Scholar-in-Residence, GreenFaith “ The Jewish tradition teaches us that we are commanded to seek justice and equity not only for present generations but for future generations as well if we hope to live peaceably upon the Earth (Deuteronomy 16:20). But the Earth, as the most visible and active agent of God’s ongoing Creation, is threatened by humanity’s failure to remember that we are not owners but rather passing tenants on this planet (1 Chronicles 29:15). The moral challenge of climate change is testing our resolve to live by these values. ”

Canon Giles Goddard

Canon Giles Goddard, Vicar of St John’s Church, Waterloo; Honorary Canon of Southwark Cathedral “ God of compassion, we rejoice in the unity that is at the heart of your creation; look upon our land and heal it. From the dangers of catastrophic climate change, good Lord, deliver us. As we stand before you in prayer for all who are suffering, grant that your light may shine in their darkness, and that we may have the courage to change our ways and so fulfil your law of love. This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ”

Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi

Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, Director, Buddhist Global Relief; Monk, Scholar, & Buddhist translator. “ The climate crisis confronts us with a choice between competing worldviews. Depending on our choice, we can move either toward continued devastation and calamity or toward inner renewal, toward healthier relationships with each other, with the earth, and with the cosmos. Climate change throws the choice into sharper relief, and thus the need to choose wisely grows ever more urgent. ”

97% of the world’s climate scientists agree that human activity is causing dangerous global warming, threatening life as we know it. At previous climate summits the world’s politicians have failed to reach meaningful agreement on how to respond. But the UN believes there IS hope of global agreement in Paris 2015 IF the moral call for action is so loud that politicians can’t ignore it. Read why governments need to act now. 


Please hope & pray for a meaningful agreement at Paris 2015 - and please spread the word!
