The need to protect each other and our sacred earth unites all of our world's religions and each of their followers based on their common beliefs that we must love our neighbor as ourself and abide by the injunction “thou shalt not kill.”  These sacred and holy principles compel us to protect the earth's elements of air, water, and soil from harm. 

Climate change is the gravest threat to the health of our planet and all of our people in the 21st century. Climate change upsets the order, balance, and harmony of the natural world, and it disrupts the lives of billions of people throughout, especially the poor. Recognizing that the solutions to climate change are both personal and institutional, the guidebook identifies specific ways in which religious believers can contribute to making the Paris Agreement 2015 on Climate Change a success.

Even the simplest choices can have an impact. Educate yourself and start taking action.

"We, the youth of different faith groups, are determined to live together in peace and mutual appreciation. We are united in the belief that it is our duty to play a crucial role in overcoming violence and striving for justice. This ideal will only be achieved through interfaith cooperation, which will be facilitated by the establishment of the European Interfaith Youth Network (EIYN)"; Geneva declaration
