Vancouver Greenfaith is an inclusive, grassroots interfaith collective united by faith in humanity and justice. We aspire to exemplify peaceful and diverse community engagement for ecological and social justice via spiritual practice.
As part of Greenfaith International, our vision is to unite and support all human beings who sense the existential threat of climate change and extinction; to honour the wisdom of all faith traditions; and to celebrate the diversity of care that we see expressed as such.
We subscribe to GreenFaith International’s 10 Climate Demands, with added emphasis on respect for indigenous rights and cancellation of new and current expansions of fossil fuel infrastructure.
Please join us on Sun. Oct 17 (2-4pm) for “Faiths 4 Climate Justice” at Creekside Park (beside Science World). As one of over 250 events around the world, this action will apply pressure on world leaders, including Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, as they prepare for the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. By uniting spiritual communities locally and around the world, this day of action aims to generate a collective awakening that honours the sacredness of Mother Earth and the dignity of all beings. Together, we will build resilient, caring communities and economies that meet everyone’s needs and protect the planet. May the era of conquest, extraction, and exploitation give way to cooperation and community.
