COP26 Vigil

The COP26 Vigil was held in George Square, Glasgow on Sunday 31st October. We marked the start of COP26 and Scottish Interfaith Week by uniting with people of all faiths and none for Climate Justice.

Senior religious leaders read the Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26 and led prayers from a diversity of religious traditions. All participants – whether joining in person or online – were invited to pray or hold in their thoughts the COP26 negotiators.

We partnered with Interfaith Glasgow and the Scottish Religious Leaders Forum for the Vigil.
