COP25: Time for Action, December 2–13, 2019


Conference of the Parties (COP) 25

COP25 will be held in Santiago, Region Metropolitana, Chile, in December 2-13, 2019. The clarion call of the Conference is Time for Action is Now (Es Tiempo de Actuar). Now the Amazon rain forest is being destroyed by fire in Brazil, while the Vatican has called for the Synod of Bishops on Amazon in October 2019. In these contexts COP25 is convened with great expectations and challenges.

It will be working on:

  • Completing Paris Agreement rule book.

  • Developing solutions for global warming in six areas: Transition to renewable energy; development of sustainable (green)infrastructures; sustainable farming; management of forests and oceans; mitigation of climate impacts; and facilitation of Climate-finance.

Engaging Laudato Si'

We commit ourselves to both personal and communal conversion and

We wish to move forward together in an orchestrated and coordinated response

In listening to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor

As we go forth as instruments of hope in the heart of the world.—The vision adopted by the UISG Plenary in 2019 guides our engagement of Laudato Si’
