JESC and its partners release the first report on the Interfaith Youth Convention on the European Green Deal, an initiative which gathers young Europeans from different faith backgrounds to reflect on the care for our Common Home in the context of the EU Green Deal.

 

The report is launched on the occasion of the UN Climate Change Conference and follows the first stage of the “Interfaith Youth Convention on the European Green Deal – Striking a Deal for our Common Home”, organized by the JESC and its partners on 1st October 2021.

On that occasion, over 100 young Europeans delegated by several faith-based organizations active at the European level exchanged perspectives and ideas on the European Green Deal, formulating proposals on five thematic areas linked to the EU initiative. Participants were representatives of the Bahá’í, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities.

The second part of the Interfaith Youth Convention will take place on Thursday 25 November 2021 from 11:00 to 12:30 (CET), with the participation of European Commission’s Executive Vice-President and Commissioner for the European Green Deal, Frans Timmermans.
