From Development and Peace:
We are delighted to kickstart People and Planet First, Development and Peace’s new annual campaign. Inspired by Pope Francis’s message of integral ecology, this is a campaign for:
Standing with human rights and environmental defenders in the Global South who often risk their lives to protect their communities’ land and water resources
Carrying the voices of those most affected by climate change to the leaders who will set the climate agenda at the upcoming G20 and COP26 summits.
Demanding strong laws to compel Canadian corporations to prevent and remedy human rights and environmental abuses across their global operations
Sounds interesting? Join our national bilingual Zoom event to learn more: 4 p.m. (Eastern time) on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
It’s your chance
to meet our partners featured in the campaign;
to learn more about their struggles;
to discover how you can get involved;
and to pray together for a fairer world.
