Building Bridges Between the UN and Civil Society

QUNO seeks to link multilateral climate change activities with grassroots communities. Together with Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW) and Friends National Committee for Legislation (FCNL), QUNO has developed a Quaker Statement on Climate Change signed by Quaker Meetings and organizations from around the world. In 2014, we published Call to Conscience, a collection of interviews with Quakers describing their personal witness in facing climate change. We prepare briefing papers and articles on upcoming issues and events, including a new "Preparation for Paris" series relating to the upcoming international conference in December 2015. QUNO also works with climate scientists to help articulate to policy makers and civil society the latest climate science and its ethical implications.
