Scaremongering about immigration and human rights is popular among UK politicians. So it was not surprising when Home Secretary Theresa May tried to exploit fears and prejudices on these topics at the annual conference of the Conservative Party (the dominant partner in the ruling coalition). But her speech did not go quite as planned.
The Geneva Interfaith Forum on Climate Change, Environment and Human Rights is an informal group of faith-based NGOs that gathered in September 2011 to reaffirm the responsibility of each faith and spiritual tradition to care for the environment and to play a role in addressing climate change and its impact on the human rights of the world’s population. This is its call for action.
