Religious actors influential in climate policy - research
Religious groups and organisations are becoming increasingly influential in international climate policy, according to research presented at the University of Münster (WWU). “They have established themselves as non-governmental actors at the UN climate conferences, for instance, and they are being taken seriously as a power […] that is able to effectively initiate environmental policy processes,” said political scientist Katharina Glaab of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in a press release. International environmental politicians include an increasing number of religious actors, “because they think these have a strong potential regarding a transformation of society, without which environmental policy is no longer possible,” she said.
