The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew Discusses Climate Change ahead of UN Summit

On November 4, 2015, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew visited Lambeth Palace in England to discuss the climate crisis ahead of the UN Summit in December.

The lecture was recorded and can be accessed with the article at: Recording from the Lambeth Lecture on the Environment

His All-Holiness said,

There has never been so much turmoil on our planet, but there has never been greater opportunity for communication, cooperation and dialogue. Basic human rights such as access to water, clean air and sufficient food should be available to everyone without distinction or discrimination. We are convinced that we cannot separate our concern for human dignity, human rights or social justice from the concern for ecological preservation and sustainability.

Also recorded at the meeting was a talk by Rev. Dr. John Chryssavgis.
