Earlier this month, leaders of different faiths politicians were brought together to discuss the issue of climate change.

The event was held on the lawns of Parliament House, Canberra, on the back of the Community Climate Petition, which has gathered more than 25,000 signatures across 94 electorates so far, thanks to the amazing efforts of over 220 committed volunteers. These volunteers have been running electorate–based petitions in their local communities, then asking their MPs to present these petitions in Parliament.

At the event, the faith leaders urged all political parties to unite for stronger climate action on behalf of those 25,000 people who have supported the petition.

Watch the video below to learn more about the event and how people of different faiths and communities are coming together to call for stronger action on climate change.
