The theme of the Interfaith School XIII, “Religion and Climate Change” is becoming increasingly relevant and needs to be followed up with concrete actions. Because, not only is climate change causing erratic seasons and weather, forest life, the availability of healthy and sufficient river, sea, and lake water for people in rural and urban areas as well as for animals, poultry, fish and even humans, are becoming less and less, insufficient and poluted.
There is also social, economic, and political injustice. The victims are not only human beings but all living things on this earth. The main perpetrators are none other than humans who are getting more greedy and selfish. They are not even pro-justice or for life with dignity, quickening one another, peacefully.
This SLI XIII is strengthening the stimulus for all religious communities, religious leaders and figures, who are also part of the community, especially for the youths to move together in efforts to prevent, address and overcome climate change issues that are happening all over the world, including in Indonesia.
Religious life encourages continuous concrete actions together in preserving and caring for the earth and all its contents so that it remains healthy and gives life to all creatures.
In that context, the Interfaith School XIII will study together with Prof. Azza Karam (Secretary General Religions for Peace International, New York) in a GENERAL LECTURE, to end this year’s program.
