There have long been faith-based interests in the well-being of Earth. This year, at COP15, the first ever “Faiths Pavilion” was featured at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity where multifaith NGOs from all over the world met around the Global Biodiversity Framework Recommendations. Here in Canada there are several faith-based NGOs that have engaged in conservation, sustainability, and climate justice work for decades.
