    Mission 21 is committed to climate justice worldwide

    Global warming is causing suffering for people and endangering the environment - especially in the global south. This is also evident in Mission 21's partner countries. We are committed to a more just world within the framework of the UN Agenda 2030. This includes a commitment to climate justice - in the global South and here. We strengthen partner churches and organisations to counter the consequences of climate change and offer educational content on global contexts in Switzerland. Climate justice also means in concrete terms: the CO2 law that we will vote on on 13 June is necessary to reduce the emission of harmful greenhouse gases in this country and to give the countries of the Global South the chance for sustainable development. Mission 21 therefore recommends a Yes to the CO2 Act on 13 June.
