At the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in October 2021, world leaders can set meaningful targets to protect creation. In November, at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), countries will announce their plans to meet the goals of the Paris agreement. Ahead of those meetings, Catholics around the world are being asked to lift up the voices of the most vulnerable and advocate on their behalf.

“Today, in view of the common good, there is urgent need for politics and economics to enter into a frank dialogue in the service of life, especially human life.”
