Listening to the Earth in and beyond COP26
Every day of the COP26, the Listening to the Earth movement offered daily moments of mindful connection to Nature guided by representatives of Original Peoples from around the world, in collaboration with the Nature+ Zone Pavilion.
The events were streamed on various media, and recordings are available below. We warmly invite you to use these recordings to keep Listening to the Earth in the run-up to COP27.
We invited participants to start their COP26 meetings with a moment of mindful connection to the Earth to relax, connect and be inspired, by sharing the Listening to the Earth “COP meeting opener” card which is available here.
"There is a space where spirit and science now meet. It's an orchard filled with curiosity, compassion and collaboration. When we slow down, sip and savour, we get to meet one another as if for the first time every time. When we do that, we create spaces for ongoing transformation, kindness and sustainable change. We do this together." Rev. Gail Love-Schock, Inter-faith minister, Scotland.
We are grateful for the precious contributions of all our partners who make these contributions possible: Nature4Climate, TreeSisters and Insight Share, and most importantly, the individuals who will be guiding us in connecting to the Earth (see programme below).
