Glasgow Earth Vigil Mission Statement

The COP 26 Glasgow Vigil will be held in person and online. In both spaces we will be sharing a profound act of prolonged silence, each bringing to the silence our own heart-centred hopes, intentions and sorrows. These reflective spaces will be held in solidarity with all those who unite in love and grief for our broken planet, giving an opportunity to pause together – whether briefly or for a longer period – and to create a powerful, silent cry for creation. The vigil offers a place to contemplate upon and support the action the world needs for all to flourish.

Each of us will have our own sense of what meditation, prayer, contemplation, silence can bring to the world at this time. We honour each other as we yearn for change; sitting, standing, kneeling together, in our homes or on the streets of Glasgow in solidarity with all people and species and with a particular focus will be upon the conference delegates and potential outcomes.

May we create a murmuration of hope whenever and wherever we gather.
