The Bahá’í International Community’s Office of the United Nations has been learning how movement around climate and the environment could serve as a catalyst for global cooperation. In consultation with collaborators, the BIC has been exploring a number of contributions to the discourse, which have more recently been distilled in a statement titled, One Planet, One Habitation: A Bahá’í Perspective on Recasting Humanity’s Relationship with the Natural World. This session will serve as a case study illustrating how efforts to read reality and apply insights from the Writings to emerging conversations is unfolding on the international stage.
