The Interfaith Alliance for Safer Communities organized on Wednesday, January 22, in Davos a press conference to talk about safety and quality of life of communities that are being eroded by climate emergency and other growing risks, and the role of religions and faiths in helping vulnerable populations.
Infact, religious leaders and communities of faith have an important role to play in order to create safer communities where all can thrive. But, it is today still evident that - while over 80% of the global population identifies with a religious group - multi-stakeholder approaches to solve these problems often exclude important voices of faith.
Card. Peter K.A. Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, took part in these event along with other religious leaders like: the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomeos; Pinchas Goldschmidt, Chief Rabbi and President of the Conference of European Rabbis; Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohinder Singh, Chairman of the Nishkam Group of Charitable Organisations.
At the end of the meeting, Card. Turkson read a final statement shot in the video above.
