The final KAIROS Climate Action Week of 2023 kicks off Monday, November 13 and concludes Sunday, November 19, galvanizing awareness and action on the climate emergency
This week’s theme, Decolonizing Climate Action: Centering Voices from the Global South focuses on the need to center the voices of those most impacted by the climate crisis in the development of climate policies and programs. KAIROS and its partners recognize that years of agreements from COP (Conference of the Parties) meetings have privileged voices and positions from the Global North and focused on proposed solutions that have failed to be equitable and to incorporate the global range of actors and their positions.
During Climate Action Week, hear from Global South voices and their advocacy for a seat at decision-making tables to tackle the climate crisis.
The November Climate Action Week will take place in the lead up to the meeting of global leaders and others in Dubai, UAE for COP28 (the 28th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC). COP28 takes place from November 30-December 12 and will include the first Global Stocktake (GST) to assess the world’s progress since adopting the Paris Agreement in 2015, as well as important discussions about Loss and Damage, climate adaptation, and food systems and agriculture.
KAIROS will be following the voices of Global South partners and ecumenical actors on the ground at this year’s COP and supporting events and actions through For the Love of Creation.

This 90-minute event will include a panel and group discussion. Panelists include Indigenous peoples, youth, voices from the Global South, and climate activists from the church. Join us to learn more about this critical issue for climate justice and how you can support next steps.
