The Human Face of Climate Change – Martin Frick at the Parliament of the World’s Religions

by Mike Lowe

Martin Frick, Director of the Global Humanitarian Forum (set up by Kofi Annan) came to the Parliament of the World’s Religions because, he said, ‘it is the world’s largest gathering of grass-roots organizations’.  He was the opening presenter on a panel on ‘The Human Face of Climate Change’, speaking alongside Mary Evelyn Tucker from the Religion and Ecology unit at Yale University (and a leading force in the Earth Charter movement) and Australia’s Tim Costello.

Here is Martin speaking about the outcomes he is hoping for from Copenhagen, followed by his presentation at the Parliament of the World’s Religions.  Thanks again to film-maker Ashley Young.

Married with two sons, I've spent most of my professional life working for a not-for-profit organization working for peace and reconciliation. Like any parent I think about the state of the planet we will be handing to our children and we try to do the best for our kids in terms of healthy, conscious that we often swimming against the tide of consumerism and video screen addiction. This blog started out as a place to share our discoveries about health issues, from a holistic perspective, but will occasionaly step onto broader issues. In case you are wondering about my Nickname, I am a fan of the Jewish philosopher Martin Buber who was really concerned about relationships of all kinds - as am I.
