Nairobi, 17 September, 2023 / 6:45 pm (ACI Africa).
Youths from various religious denominations in Kenya have joined faith leaders from across the globe in calling for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Faith leaders across the globe are calling on governments to develop and implement a legally binding written agreement that limits the production and use of fossil fuels.
In a statement read out at the Interfaith Youth Forum on Peace and Climate 2023 on Friday, September 15, the youths said the world is “at a crucial juncture in history” and decisions that are made today will determine the fate of future generations.
“By formally joining the call for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, we send a clear and resounding message to the world that we are committed to taking bold and decisive action to mitigate the climate crisis,” Isaiah Kilerai said during the event that was held at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA).
The student of St. Michael’s Secondary Day School Nairobi added, “By joining this treaty, we demonstrate our commitment to working collaboratively with the international community to address a common threat.”
