· Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin’s address at the Climate Conference in Paris ·
“A global and ‘transformational’ agreement based on the principles of solidarity, justice, equality and participation”. Recalling the words of Pope Francis on his recent visit to the UN in Nairobi, Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin addressed the 21st Conference of Parties — Cop21 — in Paris on Monday, 30 November.
In particular the Secretary of State emphasized the three pillars in which the agreement should be anchored. The adoption of a clear ethical orientation, the transmission of clear signs to guide the behaviour of all those involved, beginning with governments, and the vision of the future.
