Climate Change Initiative

Mission Statement

To build the Unitarian Universalist (UU) climate change movement through education and advocacy and to collaborate  with other climate change voices at the United Nations in order to promote a world with mitigated climate change that will be viable for us and for future generations.

Values

Climate Change Initiative's (CCI’s) values consist of the UU principles with an emphasis on principle seven, and the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) "Threat of Global Warming, 2006 Statement of Conscience".

UU-UNO Climate Initiatives at the UN

The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO), part of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), promotes human rights, peace and justice throughout the world. The Unitarian Universalist UN Office supports the work of the United Nations Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and feels its long-term vision is very much in tune with our moral, ethical, and survival imperative to ensure ecosystem health, livelihood, peace and justice for us and for future generations. There can be no long-term solution to human-rights concerns without effectively dealing with the environmental impacts, including climate change. Climate change is a human survival issue, interconnected with many social justice and environmental issues including the themes of the Fourth Session: employment and decent work for all, social protection, youth, education and culture, health and population dynamics. Local efforts will not be enough. Global action is needed, which can only be coordinated by the United Nations.
