Climate change and biodiversitySISTER-LED DIALOGUECatholic Sisters in dialogue with representatives of international organisations, governments and civil society on protecting the environment and vulnerable communitiesEvent on April 17th in Rome

The first Sister-led dialogue on the environment will take place on Monday 17th April 2023, from 9.30am to 6pm, at the headquarters of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG), Lungotevere Tor di Nona 7.

This dialogue is promoted by the UISG initiative Sisters Advocating Globally, in partnership with the Global Solidarity Fund. It builds on the statement Sisters for the Environment: integrating voices from the margins – launched last November ahead of the climate summit COP27 – and will focus on the needs and challenges of communities affected by climate change and biodiversity loss, with particular attention to the most marginalised: women, children, the elderly, migrants, indigenous communities and other minorities.

This event is the first in a series of dialogues inviting representatives of international organisations, governments, civil society, Vatican institutions academia and the press to join Catholic Sisters in discussing key issues for sustainable development and the protection of vulnerable communities, with a focus on connecting local experiences to global solutions.
