COP26

Having consulted with the Synod Church and Society Committee and Synod Officers, on behalf of the Synod Revd. Lindsey Sanderson signed a Statement of Commitment from the Scottish Religious Leaders’ Forum concerning the COP26 event in Glasgow next year. In the statement the Religious Leaders’ commit themselves to

  • Reflecting deeply in prayer, meditation and worship to discern how to care for the earth and each other, and to encourage our respective communities to do the same
  • Making transformational change in our own lives and in the lives of our communities through individual and collective action.
  • Being advocates for justice by calling on governments, businesses and others who exercise power and influence to put into effect the Paris agreement; to make the transition to a just and green economy a priority; and to commit to science-based targets that are aligned with a healthy, resilient, zero-emissions future.
