AbstractReligions and Faith communities on all continents are engaged for life and Climate Justice since many years. The common threat of humanity leads to clear interfaith calls to politicians to act more courageously. Christian Churches and other religions have been actively engaged in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the yearly Conference of Parties (COP) negotiations since the late 80’s. In this publication, nine international and interfaith statements from 2008 to September 2014 are collected, among others for the UN Climate Summit and the preconference “Religions for the Earth” in September 2014 in New York. May the statements inspire and encourage believers from all faith as well as politicians and professionals from all sectors of society and on all continents. Let us stand up against resignation and fatalism. Let us act together for human and non-human life on this planet, inspired and encouraged by faith and hope.
