A letter from Dominican delegates at COP 21

Dear Sisters and Brothers, We are writing this letter to share with you our experience of having just spent between 4 and 16 days together in Paris, attending the historic UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21) – from 30 November to 12 December. 19 Dominicans (11 sisters, 3 brothers and 5 lay Dominicans and collaborators) originating from 11 countries (Austria, Brazil, Central African Republic, France, India, Paraguay, Philippines, South Africa, Spain, USA, Zimbabwe) attended our meetings, while several others from countries such as the UK and Germany arrived for the final days of action. We had the privilege of getting to know each other and sharing our common concerns about the future of our planet, Mother Earth, especially the huge threat to it posed by rampant human-induced climate change.
