The United Nations Association of the National Capital Area and Regional Unitarian Universalist Congregations are co-sponsoring a timely webinar on Sunday, October 24th to share insights from a range of leading experts on what we can do as individuals and faith-based organizations locally and nationally to meet the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement. 
 
This program will provide an update on the preparations of the Biden Administration for COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow in November, and, importantly, the role of civil society in achieving the targets of the Paris Agreement.  Recognizing the inequitable impact of climate change on poor and minority communities, the program will explore ways in which faith-based organizations and individuals can work together to meet the ambitious climate goals equitably and promote environmental justice.

Tim Lattimer, Senior Climate Advisor at the U.S. Department of State, 

Nate Hultman
, Founder and Director of the University of Maryland Center for Global Sustainability on detail to Envoy John Kerry's office at U.S. Department of State, will moderate a panel of activists, including:
