CAFOD:G7 interfaith event - Building a better world after the pandemic

A CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) live-streamed event organised in conjunction with Christian Aid, Tearfund, World Vision, Islamic Relief and Faith for the Climate, and hosted by Truro Cathedral for people of faith to reflect ahead of the G7 summit and send a message to world leaders. 

The G7 summit will see heads of government of seven of the world’s richest countries – including President Joe Biden – travel to Cornwall and discuss how the world can rebuild after the coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has a crucial role to play, with the UK holding the presidency of the G7, CAFOD wants to send a message to him and the other G7 leaders that people of faith in the UK and around the world expect them to put in place plans for a global and green recovery from the crisis which leaves no one behind. 

The pandemic means people can’t all travel to Cornwall to send this message to the leaders at the summit.

But that doesn’t stop people from coming together online in an act of witness.  So, instead of travelling to Cornwall, CAFOD invites people to join together on laptops, tablets or phones at an event on Thursday 10 June.

There will be reflections on the impact of the pandemic, rebuilding and sending a digital message to the presidents and prime ministers ahead at the start of their meeting the next day.

This event will be live-streamed on this page at 19:00 and the replay will be available to watch on this page after the event has finished. If you have any problems viewing the live-stream or replay, please visit the cathedral YouTube channel.
